        Fuchs? Who's Fuchs? My name's Alfred Hinds

      , 1959. 1959. Sheet size: 192 × 140 mm. Pen and black ink on wove paper. Stamped on verso for publication in the Daily Mail, 24 June 1959, and with pencil reproduction instructions recto. Atom-bomb spy Klaus Fuchs was released, while small-time crook and serial prison escaper Alfie "Houdini" Hinds was still at large. The cartoons and illustrations of Nicolas Bentley (1907-1978) were part of the warp and weft of English popular culture in the 1950s and 60s. Never savage, though often waspishly accurate and exuding an urbane air of amusement at the foibles of his fellows, Bentley's work was familiar to the public from a wide variety of publications. Between 1952 and 1954 he drew regular cartoons for the weekly Time and Tide, and after that for the daily News Chronicle. Between 1958 and 1962 he drew topical cartoons for the Daily Mail under the title "Watch My Line." He also drew many portraits, in black and white line, of famous people, for various papers, including over sixty for the Sunday Telegraph, which began publication in February 1961.

It is mounted and framed, the total size of the yellow metal effect frame is 75.5cm x 55cm. A striking design of the cover for the First Paperback Edition of this title. Based on the development of weaponry in the year 1936, The Dark Frontier was one of the first novels to predict the invention of a nuclear bomb and its consequences. Ambler evidently had no knowledge of what producing an atomic bomb may involve (even professional physicists at the time had only a vague idea).
