GREENE, Graham. Monsignor Quixote. London: The Bodley Head, 1982.

8vo. Original green cloth, lettered in gilt to spine; dust-jacket by Michael Harvey; upper edge green; pp. [x], 11-220, [iv]; a near-fine copy, a little rubbed to edges of boards and spine; jacket lightly creased with overlaid price sticker (£7.62).
First UK edition. The BBC adapted this story for a TV movie which starred Alec Guinness. A pastiche of Don Quixote, with moments of comedy juxtaposed with reflection on matters such as life after a dictatorship, Communism, and the Catholic faith.
