Ex-Library



Softcover, ex library with usual stamps and stickers, but generally this particular copy is quite good - clean tight solid with no significant wear or damage. Nazi Germany considered the Catholic Church to be a serious threat to its domestic security and its international ambitions. In Germany, informants provided intelligence, but in Rome, German attempts to penetrate the Papacy were less successful - except for the codebreaking work.

First Edition
Hard Cover

Poor




Hardcover, 1952 first edition in this format from Doubleday, later printing. Dust jacket present and does have a price on flap. Endpapers with photographs, jacket design by Ursula Suess. Black covers with silver-white titles on spine. gift inscription on FFEP. Book itself presents some shelf and edgewear, bumped corners, and a somewhat "lightened" area on back cover. Otherwise it is quite good. The dust jacket is very tattered with tears, rubbing and some losses at spine and along edges. It is price clipped (although the beginning of the word "price" is still visible), and is quite creased and rubbed - but it is still present. All in all, a reasonable collector copy
