Second impression, published in July 1936, the same month as the first. The book is firmly bound in clean red cloth lettered in bright gilt to the spine, the extremities are slightly bumped and there is a small slightly faded patch to the corner of the rear board. The text block is a little toned and dusty with a few minor marks. The Barbosa designed dust jacket is the original and not price clipped, correctly showing 7/6 to the front flap, it is slightly rubbed and grubby with minor loss and short closed tears to the edges. One of the most uncommon of the early Greene novels in a jacket, the second impression features the same striking design as the first and is also priced at 7/6 but differs in that it has reviews of the book to the flaps.
