Pastoral, by Nevil Shute. 1st Edition

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

October 1944: 1st Edition, 2nd Impression. Scarce in dustjacket. In this wartime story of the Royal Air Force, Nevil Shute has written about a pilot in Bomber Command and a WAAF officer upon his station. First published six years earlier than "A Town Like Alice".

The green boards are in good condition: the book has gilt titles on the spine, which is rubbed at the extremities. Tight, clean text block. Previous
owner's name on front endpaper. The dustjacket is poor, with faded and torn spine, other tears and a lot of tape. Its front flap shows the original price of 8s 6d, and on the back flap is a topical, patriotic message about the BBC "The Voice of Britain."

Overall, the condition is rated as fair, for a 1st edition in a rare dustjacket, from this popular author.
