Biggles Flies Again
John Hamilton,, 1934. Hardcover. Collectible; Acceptable. Hardcover; English language; First Edition; 12mo - over 6.75" - 7.75" tall; a fair reading copy; undated first edition BUT probably not the first printing (see below): this book has all the indicators of a first edition, with 224 pp, blue boards, gilt lettering on front board and spine, top of page edges tinted blue, 'Made and Printed in Great Britain by the Kemp Hall Press, Ltd. in the City of Oxford' on reverse of title page, and is the bottom book on the 'Titles in the Ace Series' list on reverse of half title page; HOWEVER, according to 'The Biggles Information Web Site' the first printing did not have a catalogue, whereas this copy has a 32-page catalogue at the back (identified elsewhere on the website as the Autumn 1934 catalogue) which indicates this may be a 2nd printing of the first edition; the 32-page catalogue at the back only lists the first 4 Biggles books (this was the 4th published) and the book is described as a 'new title'; boards have some fading several small marks; the spine has darkened; no writing inside book; pages generally clean but a small number have some foxing or other marks; coloured frontis and the 4 other illustrations are all present; cracked spine between between the final page and the catalogue but there are no loose pages.
