Arrested in France later in the war, he was saved from execution by the Polish SOE agent Krystyna Skarbek. In post-war years a close friend of Lawrence Durrell, Fielding developed a career as writer and translator, achieving acclaim for his translation of 'The Bridge on the River Kwai'. In common with all TBC editions, this issue omits the plates and map present in the original. (Book ref. 18524) £30.00

Millar, George Horned Pigeon (Portway Reprints)
Bath: Cedric Chivers, 1973. First Thus. Hardcover. New/New. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 0855948620 George Millar's classic World War II prisoner-of-war escape story brilliantly conveys the terrifying experience of life on the run in wartime Europe, one step ahead of the Gestapo. Captured in the Libyan desert by the German Afrika Korps and held in various prison camps in Italy, Millar was transferred to Germany after several unsuccessful escape attempts. Escaping once more, this time from his train, Millar set out to reach London and freedom. Speaking fluent French (he had been the DAILY EXPRESS Paris correspondent at the beginning of the war) he was able to pass himself off as a French labourer on his hazardous journey. But when he returned to London, decorated for his bravery, it was to discover that his wife was in love with someone else and wanted a divorce. He joined the Special Forces there and then, and began training for operations behind enemy lines in France. (Book ref. 037768) £9.98

Marinetti, Filippo Tommaso Mafarka the Futurist: An African Novel
London: Middlesex University Press, 1998. First Paperback Edition. Paperback. New. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall 1898253102 The first English translation of a novel recounting the erotic and exotic exploits of the warlord Mafarka in North Africa, originally banned for obscenity on its release in 1909. Mafarka Le Futuriste was written originally in French and first appeared in Paris in 1909; it was then translated into Italian, not by Marinetti himself, but by his secretary, Decio Centi. Set on the north coast of Africa at the turn of the century, the novel describes the adventures of the brutal eponymous warlord, who applies technical wizardry as Zarathustran willpower to the construction of an aeroplane-like artefact which is brought to life emphatically without the aid of any woman. The outrageous misogyny of the work does not, however, prevent it from being a fascinating and sustained example of futurist theory with regard to language and metaphor. The aesthetic significance of the novel is evaluated in the translators introduction. (Book ref. 037342) £7.98
