Thomas Harris - Red Dragon

New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1981. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. 8vo. 348 pp. 1/2 black cloth binding. Very good condition. Slight wear along lower edge of boards; former owner's name stamped at upper forecorner of front free endpaper. No other markings. Dust jacket is also very good, with just a touch of discoloration along the upper 1 cm visible on the back side and front flap (see photos).

Red Dragon is the first book in Thomas Harris's Hannibal Lecter franchise. A movie adaptation, titled "Manhunter," was not a great success. The sequel to Red Dragon, Silence of the Lambs, was published in 1988; the book, as well as a film adaptation of the same title released in 1991, were blockbuster successes.
