Classic Clancy novel in which a Soviet submarine crew attempts to defect to the United States. First printing with 18 lines of text on the copyright page and no statement of printing. Pages are bright, crisp, and clean (for the most part), though there is a name on the upper edge of the front pastedown endpaper, a large notation of some sort on the rear free endpaper, and some pencil notes in the margins here and there. No bookplates or remainder marks. Not an ex-library copy. Spine is tight and crisp. Corners are square. Boards are flat and true, though there is a bit of edge wear and some bumping to the lower spine. There is also some very slight discoloration to the lower 1" of the front board. The rear board has two small white spots (1" and 1/4") on the upper portion. First edition dust jacket is not clipped and shows no price. Dust jacket also has six blurbs on the back cover, not eight as in later printings. Dust jacket does have some general edge wear including two 1/4" tears along the lower spine and some minor creasing along the lower edge. A lovely copy of a SCARCE first printing! This collectible, very good+/very good+, first edition/first printing copy is protected with an archival mylar dust jacket cover. Satisfaction guaranteed!
