The Name of Action by Graham Greene

The Name of Action is Greene’s second novel and was initially badly received by critics and the public. Sales of the book were poor and Graham Greene disowned the book so it has remained out of print since it’s first publication. This copy has a dust jacket and is in very good condition. A good find.

Original dark blue boards in bright condition with gilt lettering on the spine. Minimal wear to the covers. The contents are clean with a few minor spots of foxing. The original dust jacket is a second issue state with 3/6 net on the spine. Chipping and some loss on the top edge of the spine jacket. There is a closed tear and small hole on the front fold. 8vo 344 printed pages.
