1980 Smiley's People
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper
The first edition, second impression of this work. Complete with its unclipped dust wrapper designed and photographed by Stephen Cornwell.
The story is set in a European cold-war background, and it follows spy George Smiley to the last duel with his Russian opposite number, codename Karla. A brilliant read with much suspense and tension, good humour and humanity.
John le Carré was a British author, who worked for Security Service and the Secret Intelligence Service before becoming a full-time writer.
In the original publisher's full cloth binding. Externally very smart with minor shelf wear only. Dust wrapper unclipped and excellent with minor shelf wear, light sunning to spine. Internally, firmly bound. Minor spotting to fore edge only affecting endpapers, otherwise pages remain bright and clean.
