Regretfully, due to Covid-19, we have decided to cancel our fairs up until the end of December.  However, at this stage, we cannot confirm if our London Christmas Fair will take place but we will keep you updated.
Book Description
1st Edition. 14 x 20.7 cm blue boards with gilt stamped titles to the spine. Map front endpapers, 288 [12]pp with black and white illustrations by John Watton. With 1st Edition dust jacket priced at 15/- net. Signed and poignantly inscribed on the title page by the author, ‘Let’s pray/ these days will/ never return/ Pat Reid.’ The spine is somewhat toned and the gilt titles a little toned. Internally clean and bright with just the authors name and inscription and a hint of spotting to the edge of the text block which very occasionally extends onto the margins. The near fine jacket, which is now protected in a removable clear jacket (not shown in our images), presents extremely well. It is surprisingly clean and bright with just the merest hint of spotting to the back panel and a hint of surface abrasion to the spine tips and minimal loss to the corners. All in all a fabulous signed copy of this story of life in Colditz Prisoner of War Camp and the escape attempts that emanated from it.
