Hide and Seek

£9.99

Product description

The volume contains two tales of escape. Originally published in 1950, this is the first issue in the publisher's Popular Fiction series.
Red boards with title and author in a black frame on the spine and the publisher in black lettering. Colourful dust wrapper, with a girl in a red skirt running away from pursuers.
Book in VG condition, except for 6 dents the size of a 10p in the rear board.
The rear of the wrapper, which is slightly edge-worn, shows the same dents and is rather grubby.
Otherwise, a very reasonable copy of some unusual fiction.

Tale one "The Hideout" tells of a young Czech engineer who turns from a rather inglorious quiescence in exile to participation in a task which will mean his death.
Tale two "The Black band" is, superficially, a story of childhood, the account of one of those fantastic adventures, half reality, half myth, in which boys delight.
