Descripción David Schutte, Petersfield, England, 2009. Hard Cover. Estado de conservación: Mint. Estado de la sobrecubierta: Mint. Val Biro Ilustrador. First Edition. Orange cloth lettered gold, b/w frontispiece, Mint in Mint dustwrapper, just published, here at last are the long-lost scripts for Malcolm Saville's third Lone Pine adventure. In 1946 Malcolm Saville's third Lone Pine book was serialised for BBC's Children's Hour in six parts, adapted by Muriel Levy. The serial was repeated with a new, shorter production in 1949, but there is no evidence that a recording was made. Even the scripts had been thought lost forever - until now! Here they are, unearthed after sixty-plus years, published at last in handsome hardback with a specially commissioned wraparound dustjacket designed by Val Biro, who has also drawn a b/w frontispiece. Every serious Saville collector should have this set - see also the radio serials for Mystery at Witchend and Seven White Gates, both now in print, all originally published at £21.50.

Descripción David Schutte, Petersfield, England, 2008. Hard Cover. Estado de conservación: Mint. Estado de la sobrecubierta: Mint. Val Biro Ilustrador. First Edition. The set of three titles in the Radio Play Script series, claret, cream and orange cloth respectively, lettered gold, each with a b/w frontispiece, Mint in Mint dustwrappers, recently discovered, here at last are the long-lost scripts for Malcolm Saville's first three Lone Pine adventures. In 1943 Malcolm Saville's just-published "Mystery at Witchend" was serialised for BBC's Children's Hour in four parts, adapted by Barbara Sleigh (who went on to write the popular "Carbonel" series). Although highly successful, Saville's first serial was never repeated. There is no evidence that a recording was made, but if so, it has long since disappeared. Even the scripts had been thought lost forever - until now! Here they are, unearthed after sixty-five years, published in the three volumes of Lone Pine Radio (the scripts for "Seven White Gates" and "The Gay Dolphin Adventure" published, in 2009). The specially commissioned wraparound dustjackets were designed by Val Biro, who also drew a b/w frontispiece for each volume. Each volume is also available separately if required. New, originally published at £21.50 each, Mint in Mint d/w, today's price for the three. [A set of signed, limited edition prints of the three covers - the Val Biro pictures without the lettering - is also available]. Nº de ref. de la librería 002534
