Johns, Captain W.E. BIGGLES IN AUSTRALIA , United Kingdom: Hodder and Stoughton, 1955.

Illustrated by Leslie Stead. First Edition. Very Good +/Good +. 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall FIRST EDITION Bound in the publishers red hardboards with contrasting black title lettering to spine and front board. This is the first impression published in 1955. All pages are present and correct with no inscriptions and are tightly bound. Book sits solid and square with all corners sharp. Excellent full colour, full page illustrations by Leslie Stead throughout the text including the usual death defying frontispiece ! Black title lettering to spine and front board remains sharp and definite. A very nice copy. Housed in the Good+ dustwrapper which has slight loss to the head of spine. Small chip to top corner of front panel near spine. Lightly rubbed to edges. A decent and presentable example of the colourful dustwrapper. Protected in a removable archival booksleeve to preserve its condition. Neatly priceclipped. Inexplicably scarce at present with most copies residing, as one might guess, in Australia. Photographs of this Biggles title along with other first edition titles by W.E. Johns are available on request. (Book ref. 001096 )  £ 59.00
