The Basement Room by Graham Greene


This is Greene’s first collection of short stories, with “The Basement Room”, “I Spy”, “A Chance For Mr Lever”, and “Proof Positive” seeing their first publication in any form. The title story is recognised as Greene’s most successful short story, and was adapted by Greene in 1948 into the Oscar nominated film The Fallen Idol, directed by Carol Reed.

A hardcover edition with red boards, black lettering and clipped, illustrated dust jacket. There is a previous seller’s blue ink stamp on the inside front page. There is foxing and toning throughout but the text is clear and legible. There is rubbing and wear and tear along the edges of the dust jacket. Especially the top edges of the DJ. There is some fading to the edges of the book. Book has been priced accordingly.

Now in a clear, removable cover to protect from further damage.
