  • Biggles in Borneo – Capt W.E. Johns – First Australian Edition 1946

    Biggles in Borneo – Capt W.E. Johns – First Australian Edition 1946

    A first Australian edition of a scarce early Biggles with its original dust jacket – we emphasise original as some are sold with colour photocopies these days – we find that all a bit naff.

    Published in 1946 by Geoffrey Cumberledge for Oxford University Press, Melbourne. The UK edition came out during WWII in 1943. Octavo, 183 pages, toned a bit still on the war paper, aged to top etc, but not a bad dust jacket at all, which makes the book. A good and collectable copy.

    Subtitled …A “Biggles Squadron” Story of the Second Great War. Having just proved invaluable in the “Battle of Britain” the squadron find themselves in the heart Borneo where they set up an aerodrome unknown to the Japanese – they downs ships and rescue prisoners … the aerodrome is eventually taken over by the Royal Australian Airforce.

    One of the scarce Biggles in its jacket and with a handover to the Aussies.

  • Biggles Takes a Hand – Captain W.E. Johns – First Edition 1963

    Biggles Takes a Hand – Captain W.E. Johns – First Edition 1963

    A very good copy of this scarce first edition Biggles.

    Published by Hodder and Stoughton in 1963. Octavo, 160 pages with the odd illustration. Very good unclipped dust jacket the odd chip.

    Biggles receives a message … “If you will go to the Adlon Restaurant in Bank Street, Kensington, today, at a quarter to one precisely, and sit at table number two, you will be joined by someone who will give you information you should be glad to have – A Well-wisher”

    And, so it starts … great stuff and excellent use of commas.
