Single & Single by John Le Carre 1st / 1st Promotional 1999
Hodder & Stoughton, (1999). First edition. This copy is fine. The scarce promotional dust wrapper is wonderfully illustrated with a carnival-esque theme. It has not been price clipped and features minimal signs of wear. The boards are free from chips and marks and are tightly bound at the spine. The text blocks are free from signs of shelf wear and without foxing. There are traces of previous owner’s ink, an inscription, present on the front free-end paper. Said inscription is barely noticeable, due to the colour of the page and ink used. Customs and Excise officer named Brock on the trail of elusive fraudster Tiger Single. Helped by Tiger's son Oliver, Brock unravels the mystery of an international money-laundering operation. The rare promotional copy with the juggling hands motif on the cover.
