Jacket shows light rubbing only, with some toning to spine and some spotting to rear panel. Near fine. Greene's acclaimed novel set in the Belgian Congo, first published in Sweden in 1960. His previous novel 'Our Man In Havana', had impressed author friend Ian Fleming, who wrote an article about it for the Sunday Times and discussed the film adaptation on BBC radio.
