I Escape! by J.L. Hardy 1st / 1st 1927
London: John Lane, The Bodley Head . A very good copy of this scarce First UK edition. There is some wear and a small tear to the top of the spine. There is also a faint mark to the top right of the front board. There is a smattering of foxing marks to the side text block. Otherwise the pages are clean. Overall a very good copy.
Remarkable recollections from J.L. (Hoppy) Hardy about his escape from german captivity. With an introduction by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Incredibly Hardy escaped several times, including on one occasion swimming 50 miles to the nearest british camp, made all the more astonishing as he only had 1 leg.
