Description:
London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1962. First British edition of Deighton's first novel. Octavo, original cloth. Lengthily inscribed by the author on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Raymond Hawkey. Len Deighton's classic first novel, whose protagonist is a nameless spy, later christened Harry Palmer.

"The Ipcress File helped change the shape of the espionage thriller...the prose is still as crisp and fresh as ever...there is an infectious energy about this book which makes it a joy to read, or re-read" (Sunday Times). It was made into the 1965 film produced by Harry Saltzman and directed by Sidney J. Furie, starring Michael Caine as the protagonist.

I hurt, therefore I am An inscribed first US edition, first printing, of the Ipcress File, together with first UK editions, first impressions, of the three following novels in the Harry Palmer series. The Ipcress File's title page is inscribed, "For Chris & Malcolm best wishes - Len Deighton". Billion-Dollar Brain was originally published in America two months prior to the UK edition. Deighton's first novel, the Ipcress File was first published in London in 1962. The US edition followed a year later and retains Raymond Hawkey's striking jacket design, which Deighton much admired. The design "went against the prejudice of the book trade at the time in that it was monochromatic, used discreet typography and a photographic rather than a drawn illustration" (Milward-Oliver). This aesthetic was continued for the works that followed, the Billion-Dollar Brain with the additional feature of being attractively printed on metallic paper. Four… Read More

Description:
New York: Simon & Schuster, 1963 First American Edition. New York 1963.

Len Deighton's first spy novel and his first bestseller.
"A high-ranking scientist has been kidnapped. A secret British intelligence agency must find out why. But as the quarry is pursued from grimy Soho to the other side of the world, what seemed a straightforward mission turns into something far more sinister. With its sardonic, cool, (in the book unnamed) working-class hero, Len Deighton's sensational debut The IPCRESS File rewrote the spy thriller and became the defining novel of 1960's London." (buecher)

'Changed the shape of the espionage thriller ... there is an infectious energy about this book which makes it a joy to read' (Daily Telegraph)

Book and Dustwrapper are fine with miniscule shelf wear. Unclipped DW is now protected with a transparent Mylar sleeve.

This english classic is in a wonderful priscine condition. Collector's choice.
