London: Michael Joseph, (1963).
Hardcover. First English edition. Fine in very near fine dustwrapper with a couple of small stains on the rear panel. Inscribed by Clavell on the titlepage, presumably at a later date, noting: "[a] 1st edition yet!" Author's first book, a novel about a Japanese POW camp in WWII, and the basis for the excellent and overlooked Bryan Forbes film featuring George Segal, Tom Courtenay, and James Fox. A handsome copy.
