First edition, first printing. Published by Collins in London, 1955. This is a near fine copy. The dust wrapper is designed by John Rose and with some slight rubbing and very minor chipping to the top of the spine. It has some toning to the top edge of the rear panel and some light handling marks. It has not been price clipped and shows the original 12s. 6d. net price. The boards are free from chips and marks and the text blocks are white but with some very sparse foxing present. This copy is free from previous owners ink and is, overall, in near fine condition.
MacLean’s experiences in the Royal Navy during World War II provided the background and the Arctic convoys to Murmansk provided the basis for the story, which was written at a publisher’s request after he’d won a short-story competition the previous year.
