Patricia Highsmith - Ripley's Game

Knopf, 1974. Hardcover. 8vo. First American edition, first printing. 1/4 beige cloth binding. 267 pp. Red topstain. Ex-library copy in poor condition. Boards are generally worn with shadows of scotch tape (used to strap dust jacket in place--now removed) and quite scuffed along edges. Spine slanted 2mm or so toward the front. Library stamps on front free endpaper, half-title page, upper textblock edge; no markings to text otherwise. Front hinge repairs evident (book remains intact and readable). Dust jacket is in relatively good shape, still sharp under mylar with a couple vertical crease lines along spine and faded red titular spine-lettering. Excellent reading copy or dust jacket donor for a finer copy in need of one. Ripley's Game is the third book in a trilogy which includes earlier novels The Talented Mr. Ripley and Ripley Underground.
