The Heart of the Matter, US 1st
The Heart of the Matter
New York, The Viking Press. 1948.
First printing, July 1948.
An unusually well-preserved copy of Greene's classic examination of faith under pressure, in a wonderful '40s period jacket by Edgard Cirlin.
Major Scobie's struggle between forces for good and evil, is typical of the themes that Greene successfully used to create the major novels of his time.
Slight wear to jacket corners and spine lean to book.
