Battle Below

by Casey, Robert J

Condition: Good/Fair

Indianapolis: Bobbs-Merrill, 1945. Book. Good. Hardcover. Book Club Edition. Sub-title, "The War of the Submarines." While this has a 1st edition statement in place, given that the jacket has no price I am reasonably sure it is a book clubbing from the firsts unaltered plates. As many will know a price is rarely but sometimes seen on a BCE, but, I have never seen an unpriced US trade edition dust jacket where the publisher was a commercial enterprise unless it WAS a BCE and therefore a false first. No debossing present. Book in decent shape (date penned and xmas card laid on first endsheet). Fore edge deckle, top edge pale yellow, 380 pages. Book otherwise unmarked. Jacket rather rough, edges thoroughly chipped, crease worn, in mylar wrapper. Great old looking item. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately. Books listed by Brass Dolphin are so described, and graded, using the strict, traditional standards. For this reason, we have virtually zero returns.*.

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

"All the same ... it's a very important name. And I don't expect there are many bears in the world called Paddington!"

A lonely toy bear on an empty shop shelf on Christmas Eve in 1956 first captured the attention of Michael Bond, who kindly shared Paddington with the world.
