First edition. Crown 8vo. Pp. 255, [1 (blank)]. Sage-green cloth boards, titled in gilt to spine; cerise top-stain. Jacket design by Jan Pienkowski (priced 18s. net to front flap).
Dustjacket lightly soiled to rear panel and a tad shelf-worn to edge folds, a hint of tanning to verso upper and lower edges, with an imperceptible fade to the pink of spine, else Fine.
A mock suspense thriller centring on a "learned" all-male members' club, and written in collaboration with the Soviet historian and poet Robert Conquest. Filmed as a made-for-TV Czech movie in 1974 by Frantisek Filip, starring Milos Kopecký, Jirí Sovák, and Jirí Adamíra. "[A] long legpull." Kirkus Review
