Patrol. Philip Macdonald.


London: Collins, 1927. First Edition. Hardcover. 1st edition, preceding Harper’s common and, if you are aware, avoidable, U. S. edition (1928). Patrol is a psychological novel set during World War I, that was made into a stalwart 1934 film (The Lost Patrol) directed by John Ford, just prior to enforcement of the Hays code. Near fine in a dustjacket with a spine chip, smaller corner chips, tears at 3 folds, 1 at an edge, and some pink spots on the back, else very good and still attractive, despite its failings. A scarce jacket, and the only other one I’ve seen recently was so dampstained that a rainbow formed over it. Near fine / very good. Item #472

Price: $1,250.00
