The Saint and the People Importers.

New York: For The Crime Club by Doubleday & Co., 1972. [Crime Fiction] FIRST EDITION. Precedes the British hardcover. Octavo (21 x 14cm), pp.186. Publisher's black cloth hardback with yellow titles to spine, pictorial dust-jacket priced at $4.95. Contents clean, no inscriptions, some minor wear to front hinge, crisp jacket with a touch of edge wear. Fine. A novelisation of a Saint story originally created for the 1960s television series starring Roger Moore. The theme was suggested by Leslie Charteris to writer Fleming Lee, who produced a synopsis; in the producers hands, this treatment was adapted as a script by another writer, the original Charteris/Lee elements being 'barely recognisable'. Charteris persisted, persuading Lee to novelise their original outline, which Charteris revised in person. Item #66694
