London: William Heinemann, 1932 First issue, with uncorrected text; a proof copy in orange wraps. Pages 77, 78, 82, 98, and 131 have references to Q.C. Savory, an oblique reference to J.B. Priestley. Octavo [x], 307,  pp. (Wobbe, p. 17): "Greene also relates a conversation with Charles Evans concerning J.B. Priestley's threat of a libel action if certain lines in the then undistributed book were not changed. At that time, 13,000 copies had already been printed and bound, and altered pages had to be substituted. Priestley had seen a review copy when he demanded the changes, and so it is possible that a few copies without the alterations mentioned in "A SORT OF LIFE" may still exist." The present copy is such a copy. "Q.B. Savory" was changed to "Quin Savory" and "Dickens" was changed to "Chaucer." [TOGETHER WITH] Greene. Graham. STAMBOUL TRAIN. London, 1932; William Heinemann.
