The Scarlatti Inheritance

£14.99

Product description

This book, the first of 27 thrillers by Robert Ludlum, is an engrossing tale of international terror which, although fiction, comes terrifyingly close to fact, particularly in the present day. A searing indictment of the greed, cunning, and manipulation of power by unscrupulous and amoral characters, it surely remains as readable as when it first appeared in 1971.

Robert Ludlum (1927–2001) was an American author of 27 thriller novels, best known as the creator of Jason Bourne from "The Bourne Trilogy". The number of copies of his books in print is estimated between 290 million and 500 million. They have been published in 33 languages and 40 countries. He also wrote under the pseudonyms 'Jonathan Ryder' and 'Michael Shepherd'.

Our copy is one of the first UK edition produced by Rupert Hart-Davis in 1971 in the same year as the original publication by World Publishing in the USA. Bound in grey cloth which has a few whitish stains, some creasing of the top R/H front corner (see photo), a little shelf wear to top & bottom of the spine, and a slight crease down the spine with some fading of the black lettering thereon, it nonetheless retains its dust jacket (unclipped), which is itself protected by a clear outer cover, having suffered a tear to the top front edge, some wear to the top generally, and being a little browned at the top. The top of the text block is somewhat darkened. Inside, however, the binding is firm with no loose pages; all pages are clean and bright; some names & dates are written on the rear fep in pencil; a nice clean copy.
