Book Description

First edition, 1955. Hardback. 224pp. Dust jacket in a protective sleeve. Signed on the title page by Roger Bannister. Also signed by Harold M. Abrahams - who was Olympic champion in 1924 in the 100 metres sprint, a feat depicted in the 1981 film “Chariots of Fire”. The Harold M. Abrahams signature is extremely rare. The book is Roger Bannister’s own account of his running career, from his first discovery, as a schoolboy, of the joy of running, to his series of great victories in 1954. This is not just a thrilling account of great victories in fierce races; it is an intimate character-study of an intelligent and thoughtful man who won world-wide fame.
