John le Carré, William Boyd and Ian McEwan sign on this British First Day Cover honoring 19th Century writers
Philatelic Envelope signed: "John le Carré", "William Boyd" and "Ian McEwan", 7½x4¼. British First Day Cover honoring four 19th century writers (Charlotte Brontë, George Eliot, Emily Brontë and Mrs Gaskell), four stamps affixed (12-, 13½-, 15-, and 17½-pence), postmarked Leicester Writers' Club Celebrates Its 27th Year, Leicester, July 9, 1980. English novelist John le Carré (born in 1931) is the pseudonym of David J.M. Cornwell, who served as an intelligence officer for the British Army after World War II; two decades later, he joined the Foreign Service (1960-1964), doing work for the Secret Service. He uses these experiences to create and enhance his world of spies, lamplighters (agents who perform eavesdropping and trailing procedures), scalp hunters (overseas agents who complete dangerous acts such as murder and kidnapping) and assassins. Among his best known works are The Spy Who Came In from the Cold (1963) and the trilogy which began with Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (1974). Although it is difficult to do justice to his complex stories in a 2-hour film, many of his novels have been turned into movies, including the above and also The Little Drummer Girl (1984), The Russia House (1990) and The Tailor of Panama (2001). A generation younger are the popular and critically acclaimed authors McEWAN, whose first novel was The Cement Garden (1978), and BOYD, who broke into print with A Good Man in Africa (1982). Fine condition.
