The Story of Dr. Wassell
Little, Brown, Boston, 1943. First edition, preceding the English. Endpapers foxed, else near fine in near very good dustwrapper with some modest chips and tears. Signed by both James Hilton and the subject of the book, Dr. Corydon Wassell. Based on Wassell's heroic stance against orders to not save the wounded during the Japanese invasion of the Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia). Basis for the Cecil B. DeMille-directed film starring Gary Cooper. This copy also bears the contemporary signature of actor John Burton, who appeared in several films either scripted by Hilton or based on his novels, including *Lost Horizon*, *Mrs. Miniver*, and *Foreign Correspondent* (though he was not in *The Story of Dr. Wassell.*) At any rate a scarce book to find signed by both Dr. Wassell and Hilton. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Between the Covers-Rare Books, Inc. ABAA [Gloucester City, NJ, U.S.A.]
