London: Jonathan Cape, 1967. [Cold War spy thriller] UNCORRECTED PROOF COPY in oversized PROOF-ONLY dust-wrapper. Octavo (20 x 13cm), pp.254; blank. Publisher's lime-green softcovers in jacket, with traces of the bold printed word 'ENGLISH' to extreme front edge of the flap and 'PROOF ONLY' in bold to rear with provisional publication date below. Unlike the published jacket, the proof wrapper is not glazed. Some edge-spotting else fine, in rubbed jacket, worn to unsupported/oversize areas, sunned to spine. A rare survival; all of Deighton's Cape-published proofs are uncommon in their proof jackets, the earlier titles especially so. Item #53114
