The Honorary Consul Graham Greene

The Honorary Consul - Graham Greene

London: The Bodley Head, 1973, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with a tear to the head of the upper panel. A little age-toning to the edges of the text block. The pages are somewhat tanned, if tight, and a little musty.

From the cover: “In a provincial Argentinian town a group of revolutionaries kidnap the wrong man. Their victim — Charley Fortnum, the ‘Honorary Consul’ — is sixty-one years old, living on whisky and his disputed status as British consul. In this gripping tragi-comedy, Graham Greene explores the far-reaching repercussions of the bungled kidnap.”

Jacket designed by Michael Harvey. Size: 8" x 5¼". Green boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 374 pages.
