GREENE, Graham (Henry Graham), 1904-1991 : THE MINISTRY OF FEAR : AN ENTERTAINMENT.

London : William Heinemann, (1943). First edition. Greene’s powerful evocation of London in the blitz – and a spy thriller full of guilt, menace and deceit. Informed by his work at the Ministry of Information – and turned into the 1944 Fritz Lang film noir, with Ray Milland and Marjorie Reynolds.
Crown 8vo (181 x 119mm). [vi],236,[ii]pp. Bound in a smart later half green morocco, lettered in gilt; top edge gilt; marbled endpapers; tiny corner clipped from front free endpaper; mild tanning of edges, but a very good and attractive copy of a difficult wartime Greene.
