Author: J.P.W. MALLALIEU
Title: Very Ordinary Seaman. IN FULL MOROCCO
Description: "Gollancz, " "8vo., First Edition; handsomely bound in navy blue full morocco, back gilt with five raised bands, second and fourth compartments lettered and ruled in gilt, all other compartments tooled and ruled in gilt, uncut, a most attractive copy ideal as a gift or for presentation. Fictionalised but accurate account of the author's five months in a destroyer on the Murmansk run. Generally considered one of the finest accounts of life at sea; certainly a minor classic of WWII. A lovely copy of the scarce original edition. Law, 1062."
