The Paravane Adventure signed by L. Cope Cornford 1st / 1st 1919
London: Hodder & Stoughton (1919). First UK edition with the rare dust wrapper. The book and wrapper are just about in very good condition. The wrapper has a large chip to the back panel. There is wear along the edges and to the spine ends. The boards are dulled and marked although the pages are clean and presentable.
This copy, rare with the wrapper has been signed twice by the author. Firstly a short initialled inscription and then flat signed by him to the title page under his name. This rare story, entirely fictional is about a team of young navy officers in direct conflict with the german fleet with a lot of the action based around mind sweeping.
