Eastern Approaches.

Published simultaneously with The Book Society, this is the much scarcer Jonathan Cape first edition. One of the great autobiographies: Soviet Russia in the 1930s, travels in Central Asia, fighting behind German lines with the Long Range Desert Group in North Africa and parachuting into Yugoslavia to join Tito's guerrillas. John Buchan and Ian Fleming couldn't have invented this. A nice copy.

Price: £225.00
