Editorial: Hodder & Stoughton, [1947]

Edición: 1st Edition


8vo., First Edition, with tinted frontispiece, wood-engraved title-vignette, 20 plates printed in blue, numerous wood-engraved illustrations in the text and 6 large folding maps (one printed in colours), endpapers very faintly spotted; sand cloth, a remarkably bright, clean copy in unclipped dustwrapper, the latter just a little browned at extremities. In one of the earliest personal memoirs of naval service in WWII, Seligman gives a thinly veiled account of his experiences in the Aegean in 1941 when he helped to smuggle five Russian merchantmen through the Axis blockade. He returned on the MV Olinda and that journey also is described in full. Although there is no connection whatever, this little-known story is reminiscent in sheer daring and blatant skulduggery of Maclean's fictitious The Guns of Navarone. This is an extraordinary book in other ways. Produced by a major publisher not often given to war memoirs, it is unusually well-produced with lavish illustration and large and detailed maps. The print run must have been small for it is very scarce, especially in this condition. Enser, p.63; Law, 0360. N° de ref. de la librería 3581
