The Secret Pilgrim signed by John Le Carré, 1st/1st, 1990
London: Hodder & Stoughton, (1990). SIGNED. First edition. This is a near fine copy. The bright dust wrapper has a light blemish on the bottom left of the front face, light crumpling at the top of the tail, and it has been price clipped. The boards are free from chips and marks, and the text blocks are bright and white. The author’s signature appears on the title page in blue ink and is without inscription. Overall, this copy is in near fine condition and with a highly sought-after signature. Set within the frame narrative of an informal dinner talk given at the spy-training school in Sarratt by George Smiley. As Smiley talks, the first-person narrator, whom readers know only as "Ned," recalls his own experiences in a long career in the service.
