DEIGHTON, Len. Billion Dollar Brain. London: Jonathan Cape, 1966.
8vo. Original blue buckram, debossed and lettered in gilt along backstrip and with vertical strip of white, embossed with code, to upper board; preserved in the original iconic foil jacket; printed endpapers showing automath statements; pp. [viii], 312; a very clean example, near-fine with some patches of light pushing to head and foot of spine and in one small section to lower board; fragile wrapper is clipped and lightly scratched, with one small closed tear to front panel; still scarce in this condition.
Basis for the third of a trilogy of British films based on Deighton's "nameless spy" novels starring Michael Caine, this entry directed by a young Ken Russell.
