Brighton Rock

GREENE, Graham

GREENE, Graham Brighton Rock

Heinemann, 1938.

First edition. Original red cloth with gilt titles to spine gilt, in exceptionally rare pink dustwrapper. A near fine copy with a little foxing to the foredge in a very good dustwrapper, which shows some loss to the head of the spine, about half an inch at its deepest and slightly larger associated loss to the upper corner of the front panel, just clipping the B of the title. A small triangular chip to the base of the spine, but otherwise crisp with notable bright colouring.

The novel that established Greene's reputation as a major force in Modern Literature. It carries all of Greene's classic themes - sex, seediness, guilt, betrayal and death - in a stark and uncompromising style.
First editions of this title without dustwrapper are not uncommon, yet in its dustwrapper it is a book that is most often missing from major literary collections. "Ardent Greene collectors despair of ever seeing it, let alone acquiring it" - Joseph Connolly
