Publisher: G. Bell and Sons Ltd, London, 1936, 1st edition. Hardback with rare dustjacket, 372 pages. Frontispiece photograph of author. Cover, in mid-green cloth boards with light green cloth spine and gilt titling to spine, is in good condition with a little light bumping to spine extremities. Internally the book is in generally good, clean and tight condition with light tanning to pages commensurate with age and no tears, inscriptions or significant marks. Binding just beginning to loosen at p 177 but has not significantly affected the general firmness / tightness of the book. The very scarce pictorial dustjacket, which is protected, is in fair condition for its age with some tanning, a closed tear (without loss) to bottom left corner, some shelfwear to edges and some nibbling to spine extremities. A fascinating auto-biography of this military man of many parts - he fought in the Boer War and 1st World War as well as being a highly competitive jockey (he rode his own horse in the Grand National), an oil prospecter in Georgia, treasure hunter in the Cocos Islands and finally as an intelligence officer with the British forces in Ireland. An interesting life and a fascinating read. Copies of this book in the original dustjacket are now extremely difficult to find.
