Three separate books, all first editions, first printings. Tinker Tailor, Soldier Spy published in 1974; The Honourable Schoolboy published in 1977; Smiley’s People published 1980. All books are near fine/near fine. Volume two is price clipped. Tinker Tailor – SIGNED via a bookplate to the title page by John le Carre; arguably the author’s masterpiece. A very good book (one small name to the head of the front endpaper), firm and square binding in clean black boards; a little rubbing to the edges and gently pushed to the spine tips; the publisher’s topstain is NOT faded. The very good unclipped dustwrapper (£2.95 net stated) is bright and vibrant with some fading to the spine; some rubbing to the spine tips and corners and some lifting of the laminate to the side of the spine. The Honourable Schoolboy – a very good book SIGNED via bookplate on the title page by the Author. Map endpapers. In a near fine clipped dust wrapper with a touch of wear to the extremities. Smileys People – a near fine book SIGNED without dedication on a bookplate to the front endpaper. Unfaded spine. All dust wrappers have a little wear to the edges. All now protected in Brodart wrappers. The first volume was the basis for the 1970s series starring Sir Alec Guinness and latterly the excellent motion picture featuring Gary Oldman. A near fine set. (Extra postage abroad will be required)
