WRIGHT, PETER: - Spycatcher. The Candid Autobiography of a Senior Intelligence Officer.

William Heinemann. Australia. 1987 1st edition. Tall 8vo. Black hard card covers with silver to black cloth spine. With illustrated dustwrapper. In near fine condition with very good dustwrapper (dw; Very slightly creased along top edge. Small marks to front. Not price clipped). A very clean and tight copy. 392pp. With 8 b/w photo plates. Notorious for the exhaustive attempts by the British Government to supress this book under the Official Secrets Act, it was written by the former Assistant Director of MI5. The author tells of his time in MI5 and of the illegality and incompetence with the Security Service and reveals who he considers to be the ‘5th man’ in the Philby, Burgess, Maclean and Blunt, Soviet spy circle. This edition was published in Australia when it was still banned in England, although available in Scotland!.
