BUCHAN, John.

The Thirty-Nine Steps.

Stock Code
104590
Edinburgh & London, William Blackwood and Sons, 1915
£1,150

A great first edition of one of the most famous spy stories of the twentieth century, brought to the screen, stage and radio on numerous occasions and soon to be serialised by Netflix, starring Benedcit Cumberbatch as Richard Hannay. Buchan purportedly wrote the book to cash in on the concurrent pulp fiction phenomenon, and following the success of the book wrote two further Richard Hannay novels.

As the book was a war-time publication the production values were low, utilising cheap paper notoriously prone to browning. This copy is much better than most we have seen.
