New York: David McKay Company March, 1972. 6th Printing. Hardbound 8vo (about 9.5 inches tall) 696 pages. Bibliography, index. Red endpapers. Description: Dust jacket design by Wendell Minor. Following is taken from the publisher's blurb: ''The whole story of German espionage in the Untied States and Great Britain before and during World War II. Author Ladislas Farago, a lifelong student of espionage and an important figure in U.S. Naval Intelligence in World War II, stumbled across a treasure trove of documents which had remained untouched in a dark loft of the National Archives for over twenty years. Included in this mass of documents was microfilm containing the secret records of the Abwehr organizations conducting the espionage operations, with records of every name -- real and cover -- of every agent, every mark spent, and every report received, every order given. With these revelations as a base, Farago spent the next four years interviewing surviving intelligence operators on both sides, supplementing, confirming and correcting the disclosures those supposedly destroyed documents contained.'' Originally published in 1971, this is a later printing BINDING/CONDITION: gold cloth with black fox/swastika vignette, black cloth at the spine; a Very Good+ book, with a Good dust jacket; publisher's price on the jacket flap is intact. The jacket is very good, but for some separation of the clear laminate layer. ISBN: 0061

 PAGE, BRUCE AND DAVID LEITCH AND PHILLIP KNIGHTLEY., The Philby Conspiracy.
PAGE, BRUCE AND DAVID LEITCH AND PHILLIP KNIGHTLEY.
The Philby Conspiracy.
Garden City, New York: Doubleday & Company 1968. Book of the Month Club Edition. Hardbound 8vo (about 8.5 inches tall) 300 pages. Black endpapers. Description: Includes four short sections of black and white photo plates. Introduction by John le Carre. The following is from ''A Report by Drew Middleton'' the BOMC insert, 1968): ''The shabby, twisted, exciting histories of H A R (Kim) Philby, Donald MacLean and Guy Burgess are certain to inspire dozens of books. But it seems likely that no other book in the future will catch so well as this one does the personalities of the three British traitors and, equally important, the flavor of that sad, aimless, upper-class group from which they came, so unrepresentative of their country's best and so damningly damaging to its interests. This tells, as far as the authors are able, the histories of the three oddly assorted men. Philby is the central character and deservedly so. Here is a man who sold himself to the Soviets in the 1930s and for nearly thirty years managed to keep the sale a secret while rising during the same period to become a central figure in the Secret Intelligence Service of his country.'' Middleton goes on to explain that he knew Philby in 1939. This copy includes the BOMC insert. BINDING/CONDITION: burgundy cloth with gilt spine text (a step up from a typical Doubleday binding); a Near Fine book, with a Good+ dust jacket. The jacket would be Very Good but for spine fading. The front panel color is bright. ISBN: 00064
