New Arrival: The Bourne Identity by Robert Ludlum

Our second new arrival today is this:













A UK first edition hardback of Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Identity, published by Granada in 1980. I picked up the second Bourne book, The Bourne Supremacy, in Arundel a few weeks ago, and now I have the first one too, so I can get going on this series. Er, at some point. Jesus I've got a lot of books to read. Not bad condition this one: a little yellowing on the dustjacket and pages, but otherwise firm. As I mentioned before, I love the movies, so I'm interested to see how the original novel stacks up. Apparently real-life international terrorist Carlos the Jackal features in the book, so that's one thing that didn't make it into the films.

(NB: You can read my review of the novel right here.)
