Le Carre, John
Sarratt and the Draper of Watford
A bright UK first edition, first impression. Comes with the proof dustwrapper - which is completely different to the wrapper that eventually accompanied the published book. Scarce thus.
Wrapper : The wrapper on this copy is very bright, is clean and is complete. It is unclipped. Looks very sharp.
Book : The book is square and very tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are clean and unfaded, the corners sharp. The pages are clean and bright. The closed page edges are fresh. No remainder marks. No dog-eared pages. The binding is tight, the hinges are solid. A handsome copy in a protected wrapper.
