MACKENZIE, COMPTON, - Greek Memories [Uncorrected Proof Copy].

Title: Greek Memories [Uncorrected Proof Copy].
Description: London: Cassell, [1932]. First Edition. The uncorrected proof copy of this memoir of the author's time in Greece during World War I, during which time he worked for the British intelligence service MI6, eventually becoming the head of the Aegean Intelligence Service. The memoir was suppressed upon publication as a violation of the Official Secrets Act, and Mackenzie was fined. In the book he revealed for the first time the existence of the SIS (Secret Intelligence Service) and was highly critical of particular individuals. As a result, he was later placed on MI5's watch list, and his activities were monitored by the British domestic intelligence service. The book was republished in 1939 without fanfare. Spine slant; initials to rear cover; staining and bookstore (?) label to front cover; good in wrappers. Few copies of the 1932 edition survived; proof copies are especially uncommon.
