New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1989. UNCORRECTED PROOF, preceding the First American Edition. Laid in is a short note, author unknown, written on the publisher's stationery: "Dear Doris / le Carre: Masterly and as up-to-date as tomorrow's headlines. / [illegible]."
Very Good plus in white trade-size wrappers. A single spine crease, light soil, and a corner crease at the rear wrapper.
