Forsyth, Frederick (2014) ‘The Day of the Jackal’, signed Folio Society edition


Frederick Forsyth (2014) ‘The Day of the Jackal‘, UK illustrated edition, published by the Folio Society. First and only printing (first edition thus). Signed on the half-title page by the author.

Beautifully produced edition with a smart design: pictorial boards and a slipcase with a cut out circle resembling a rifle’s target peephole. When the book is housed in the slipcase the silhoutte of Charles De Gaulle is visible. Illustrated throughout with numerous atmospheric black-and-white pictures by Tatsuro Kiuchi. Introduced by Ken Follet.

Provenance of the signature: signed to us in person at the Cheltenham Literature Fesival on 11 October 2018.

Condition: both book and slipcase are in fine condition.

‘The Day of the Jackal’ received the Edgar Allen Poe Award in 1972. It was filmed in 1973 as a blockbuster movie. The book has become an international bestseller with sales hitting over 2.5 million copies by 1975 alone.
