367 pp, 8 3/4" H. Dark blue cloth with gilt lettering on spine. B&w photographs. Inscribed on front free endpaper: "L.Marsland Gander / London, / July 9, 1950" with underscore. "Marsland Gander is a man who has 'been places and seen things', things which he records in this autobiography of a successful journalist with all the vigour and humour of a great adventure. Born and brought up in London's East End, the future War Correspondent and Radio Critic started his career on a local paper and worked his way up. Since those early days he has visited more than thirty countries and met many famous men and women. His assignments have given him an 'inside slant' on some of the biggest stories of recent times, and in several instances he is now able to disclose information which was hitherto suppressed by the censor. (He) witnessed the much criticised campaign in Southern France, the sensational capture of Leros, the Airborne drop across the Rhine and the liberation of Rome, Athens and Amster-dam. Since the war he has toured America from coast to coast and has much to say of recent radio and television developments. There are personal anecdotes of President Truman, the Pope, Bernard Shaw, H.G. Wells, George Lansbury, of famous soldiers like Montgomery and Alexander, and many others." Wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, one page leaf with three very small or tiny chips (with opposite leaf paper tags) and a very small edge tear - also a soft wrinkle, light toning to endpapers, light toning to edges of text block and tiny foxing marks on top of text block, tiny dents on bottom edge of both boards, one tiny and one very small corner bump. Dust jacket has small chips and tears (some with creases) - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, rubbing and soiling on panels, now protected in a mylar sleeve.
