GREENE, Graham; YOUNGMAN CARTER, [Philip] (artist).

England Made Me.

Stock Code
London, Heinemann, 1935

A superior first edition of an early Graham Greene, in an iconic dust-jacket designed by one of the leading jacket artists of the era, Philip Youngman Carter.

England Made Me is mainly set in Stockholm, revolving around the character of Anthony Farrant, a ne'er-do-well of some roguish charm who takes on the role of bodyguard to a dubious Swedish financier, resulting in a series of betrayals and moral crises that lead ultimately to Farrant's untimely demise. The book was adapted for film by Peter Duffell in 1973, starring Michael York as Anthony Farrant, with the location changed to Nazi Germany.

Despite the clipping of the jacket, presumably due to the book being presented as a gift coeval to the time of purchase, the jacket can be identified as a first issue by the absence of a price on the spine and reviews on the inside flaps.

First edition, first impression; 8vo; very light toning to text-block but overall internally fine; publisher's cloth, minor bumping to corners, otherwise fine, in the original first issue dust-jacket designed by Youngman Carter, price removed from from both flaps, presumably for gift presentation, neat conservational restoration to fore-edge folds, corners and spine ends but in effect an excellent example of this iconic dust-jacket.
