Book Description: Accord Productions Ltd., 1968., 1968. Folio. 1st and only edition. Large format, foolscap, wrappers. Wrappers a little creased and with two old staple marks. Loosely inserted are two signed typed letters and one signed autograph letter from Len Deighton to Liz and Derek Jewell. Jewell [1927 - 1985] was a writer, broadcaster, critic and publishing director of Time Newspapers. Deighton was a friend and they socialised regularly. The autograph letter relates to an advert that Deighton was proposing to write for American Express. The script is, in my experience, the rarest item in Deighton's canon. He asked for his name to be removed from the final screen credits for Richard Attenborough's film, a decision he later described as childish. I also have a number of inscribed books from Deighton to Liz and Derek Jewell - please enquire. Bookseller Inventory # 34237

Book Description: Hodder (1962), Cape (1963-66), 1963. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. A superb first edition set of the four ‘Harry Palmer’ novels, a highpoint in post-war espionage fiction published between 1962 and 1966 – all are first impressions, Horse Under Water being the rarer first-state with (unmarked) crossword endpapers. All four books are free of marks, inscriptions and foxing. The Ipcress File is clean and crisp in sharp orange boards, Fine but for a little very faint, scattered spotting to the top-edge of the page block. The unclipped dustwrapper (15/- net stated) is just about Very Good: wear with modest surface loss to the spine tips and corners; rubbing and a little browning to the very extremities of the edges and some minor surface indentations and soft creases by the spine; crease to front flap; remains a very bright and striking example of Hawkey’s iconic design. Horse Under Water is Near Fine: clean and crisp in red boards with gently pushed spine tips and corners. The Very Good unclipped dustwrapper (16s stated) has a little wear to the extremities and a closed 1.5cm tear at the top of the rear gutter, and another, shorter one at the top rear corner with some associated creasing in between. Nonetheless, a very bright example. Funeral in Berlin is a lovely, Fine copy. The crisp, unclipped dustwrapper (18s net stated) is Near Fine+, with just a hint of wear to the top edge. Billion Dollar Brain is similarly excellent: Fine, with some tiny, very faint spots to the top edge. The clipped dustwrapper is in excellent condition for such a notoriously fragile wrapper – there is some inevitable scratching and rubbing to the foil and a little wear to the top edge, but overall is Very Good+. All the dustwrappers are now housed in removable, archival-quality Brodart protective covers. Overall: Ipcress (NF/VG), Horse (NF/VG), Funeral (F/NF), Billion (F/VG+). All-in-all, an excellent and very collectible set. All orders are sent very carefully wrapped in bubble wrap and sturdy cardboard. Bookseller Inventory # H222
