In Search of a Character. Two African Journals, Greene, Graham
1 Greene, Graham In Search of a Character. Two African Journals
London The Bodley Head 1961 1961 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Small 8vo. 
123 pp. Two journals: Congo Journal and A Convoy to West Africa are included - the Convoy to West Africa was first published in The Mint in 1946, but this is the first edition to publish both. These journals preceded Greene's novels 'A Burnt-Out Case' and 'The Heart of the Matter', respectively. Jacket fine with a couple of minor pencil annotations near the price. A couple of faint scratches to fore-edge. The publishers state that it is bound in 'elephanthide' boards with a cloth spine - this didn't actually require the injury of any noble beasties, as it is a rather expensive texturing technique. Paper is dark khaki, cloth boards are burnt orange; very attractive under the dustwrapper. 
Price: 48.00 GBP
