First edition. Octavo, pp192, one folding map, frontispiece photograph of the author. Black cloth covered boards with gilt lettering to spine. In original dust jacket, unclipped (15s. net) but subsequently re-priced in pen at 5/-.

 

This is Ralph Goodwin’s second book, his first being an account of his escape from POW camp in Hong Kong. This book gives an account of incidents and activities within the various camps in Hong Kong including Stanley, Shamshuipo and Argyle Street including particularly efforts to make contact with people beyond the camp gates.

 

 

Very Good book (bumped rear lower corner, small pen mark at top corner of ffep) in a Very Good- jacket which is chipped to top of spine, has a repaired tear at bottom of front panel and is generally a bit worn to edges. Quite uncommon.
