THE ADVENTURES OF JOHN WETHERELL., (Weatherell, John.)  Edited & with an introduction by C.S. Forester.
1 (Weatherell, John.) Edited & with an introduction by C.S. Forester. THE ADVENTURES OF JOHN WETHERELL.
London Michael Joseph 1954 Second Printing Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
275 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H). Pictorial endpapers, b&w plates. "John Wetherell was a native of Whitby, one of the thirteen children of Nathan Wetherell, a whaling captain. He was born in 1780, and his father died in 1789 - killed, according to Wetherell, in a skirmish with Eskimos in Davis Strait. Wetherell himself died, probably in New York, sometime after 1834. He left behind him an autobiography, in three volumes of manuscript amounting altogether to a thousand pages. It had been the object of a fruitless search by students of the period until, a few years ago, Mrs Anne Klein of New York, an enthusiastic collector of rare nautical books, discovered it at the New York auction of the library of the late Gabriel Wells." A fascinating look at life at sea in during the Napoleonic era, including conditions in the prisons for sailors in France. Previous owner's small stamp on front end papers, light wrinkling at bottom of spine, light edge wear. Dust jacket has been price-clipped, has very light stamp ink offset on front flap, very light wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds.

128 pp, large 8vo (9 7/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0340248238 Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs. "Colditz Castle is the Eiger North Wall of World War Two POW camps. It was the ultimate fortress for the bravest and the best, f or the most ingenious, most determined and daredevil spirits who had already effected an exit from lesser establishments of the Third Reich. From Colditz, it was boasted, there could be no escape. The stories of those Allied officers who t o o k u p t he challenge are now well known. But here for the first time a book gathers together a collection of the authentic official German photographs, actually taken on the spot within hours of various foiled escape attempts being discove r ed . S om e ti me s t hey are pictures of the stable door after the horse has fled successfully over the distant border. They were taken between the years 1941 and 1944 by Johannes Lange, a local Colditz town photographer of weddings and christ en ing s, de put ed by th e Thi rd Reich to record what the war's most persistent escapologists were up to....Lange's persistent camera also recorded escape equipment ingeniously devised by the backroom boys, from a compass in a walnut shell to a gl ider wh ich was mer cifu lly sa ved from the ultimate test of the launch pad by the end of the war. The stories are desperate and amazing, funny and tragic by turns, but always exciting. (This book) is also a tribute to the ingenuity and invi ncib ility of the huma n sp irit.

208 pp, 9 3/4" H. Signed on front free endpaper: "Art Beltrone / Lee Beltrone". Profusely illustrated in b&w and colour. "With watercolors extracted from food can labels and paint brushes made from their own hair, downed World War II American airmen recreated their recollections of combat and experiences as prisoners of war in blank books provided by the Y.M.C.A. With remarkable ingenuity and creativity, prisoners used their Wartime Logs as a mental escape from the physical confinement of German prison camps. Sketches, illustrations, poetry, diary entries - all were recorded in each prisoner's log book. (This book), printed and bound in roughly the size and format of the originals, features artwork and anecdotes from more than a dozen log books kept by U.S. Army Air Force pilots and crewmen held prisoner in German camps during WWII. Adventure, boredom, laughter, horror, and courage fill these pages. (It) provides a unique look into a chapter of history that should never be forgotten and will inspire us all." Minor lean to spine, slight waviness to top/bottom edges of text block. Dust jacket has some light edge wrinkling, light rubbing on panels, three very small dents on rear hinge.

THE TARTAN PIMPERNEL., Caskie, Donald C.
6 Caskie, Donald C. THE TARTAN PIMPERNEL.
London Oldbourne 1959 Reprint. Good+ Good 
270 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H). B&w plates. "On Sunday, 10 June 1940, the Rev. Donald C. Caskie, Minister of the Scottish Kirk in Paris, preached for the last time in four years, said goodbye to his congregation, locked the church and joined the mass-exodus from the city. A Highlander, he denounced Hitler from his pulpit. He was on the Gestapo 'Black List'. After a perilous journey - he was mobbed by French villagers who thought him a German paratrooper and machine-gunned from the air - he arrived in Marseilles and commandeered the British Seamen's Mission near the Old Harbour. There the adventures of 'The Tartan Pimpernel' began. Immediately contacted by Allied Intelligence Officers he was conscripted to service. The Seamen's Mission became a vital link on the escape route for prisoners-of-war and soldiers escaping from Dunkirk. He fed, clothed and gave the men shelter before sending them through the Pyrenees with forged papers to Spain. He collected military information for the Allies. Denounced by a British traitor, Dr. Caskie was banished to Grenoble where he continued his work as an 'underground padre'. Arrested by the Gestapo and sentenced to death in a Nazi Court he passed through seven prisons and was saved from death by a German padre. Throughout all his perils (he) was sustained by the Christian Faith and inspired by native patriotism. Still the Scottish Minister to Paris, he has saved the books in which he recorded the names of his guests of war. Among the legion of men he helped were Whitney Straight, the millionaire sportsman and R.A.F. ace, and Redvers Prior, M.P. His story is enlivened by Scottish humour and brilliant character studies of his comrades and enemies." Areas of light browning/foxing on end papers, one corner with a slight small bump, light wrinkling and colour fading at top/bottom of spine, some light colour fading on top edge of rear board, light browning on bottom edge of boards, browning and faint tiny foxing marks on edges of text block.

Ian Allan, London, (1974), Ist edition. 
136 pp, 8vo, hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photos. "Less well known (than stories of the Colditz and Stalag III escapers) but equally heroic were those of the large numbers of Royal Air Force NCO pilots, observers and air gunners who fell into German hands...A particularly notorius NCO camp was Heydekrug on the Baltic coast in what was East Prussia - the scene of one of the most remarkable POW exploits of the war. A tough, daring and resourceful escaper, Warrant Officer George Grimson, succeeded in establishing an escape route within Nazi Germany itself. Destined to be one of the great classic escape books, 'Sergeant Escapers' tells the story of George Grimson and his fellow NCOs and their attempt, successful and unsuccessful, to outwit their captors, frequently in conditions that made Colditz look like a rest camp. The author...was himself a POW and an eye-witness to the unfolding drama of the Grimson escape saga."

After qualifying as an airgunner, Charlie sailed for England in 1941 and spent the next two years flying over Europe with the #83 and #207 squadrons. Leaves spent in London and with Aunt Jennie in Scotland provided welcome respites from the terrors of war for Charlie and his chum, Cam, and both looked as if they would be two of the lucky ones. Then Cam was shot down. Six months later, Charlie, too, was shot down in a fiery crash that killed his pilot. Reunited in the same POW camp, Charlie and Cam found themselves forced to plumb depths of resourcefulness they never knew they had, in circumstances they never knew existed.

After an unusual interrogation at the hands of the Local Defence Force, the two Canadian flyers were transferred to a makeshift prison camp in County Kidare - right next to a similar camp for German prisoners. There they found themselves subject to a surreal honour system that allowed them daily parole away from their internment camp - free to golf, meet women, and drink beer - without supervision. This system forbid escape when they were on parole but bound them, as RAF officers, to attempt to do so upon their return to camp."

The group fought and harassed the Brigate Nere and the Germans along the Magra Valley from north of Pontremoli to La Spezia for eighteen months. They were so influential to the success of the Allied advance that permanent lines of communication with the Allies were established, supplies dropped by air and, later, SAS troops sent in to assist the Battalion. 500 Allied troops escaped to safety via Rossano."
