BRITISH LEATHER – A Record of Achievement

From the title you wouldn’t know what was missing from the title, that is, “in the Second World War. The book has some superb evocative illustrations (though I have to admit not “Macabre”, I slipped that in as I don’t think they covered all bases). This is aptly, a leather bound copy, previously owned by WL Ingle Ltd Leeds. Printed by Batsford, undated but I think it was published in 1946, that makes sense with the contents.

I am offering this copy for £2.50 (Macabre thrown in free)

Of Their Own Choice – Capt. Peter Churchill D.S.O.

Of Their Own Choice – Capt. Peter Churchill D.S.O.

Corgi 1955 1st vg Of Their Own Choice was the first of three books describing his wartime experience in the French section of the Special Operations Executive. He describes his initial training at Warnborough Manor, near Guildford, in sabotage, Morse code, use of firearms, bridge demolition, and French military drill; and then to the Scottish Highlands near Mallaig, for map reading, orienteering, weapons and explosives training, close combat, and physical training; and then parachute training at Ringway near Manchester. The final training was at the Finishing School at Beaulieu Abbey in the New Forest where he learnt railway sabotage, inconspicuous behaviour, codes, cover stories, how to build up networks, and how to behave under interrogation. Of 14 people who began the training, Churchill was one of only three who graduated. He was assigned to the French Section in June 1941, and given his French identity card with a false identity. His first mission was to be infiltrated into the French Riviera by submarine in order to inspect three SOE networks in Antibes, Marseille and Lyons, evaluate their strengths weaknesses, assess their needs, and give them instructions. He was also to provide them with funds to continue their work. He was assisted by American agent, Virginia Hall. Having completed his mission he crossed the Pyrenees on foot and returned to the UK via Gibraltar to report back to SOE Headquarters.

Observers

I have over 33 foot of Observer Books in various locations in my shop, there could quite possibly be more waiting to be found. Before you ask, there are none of the more obviously rare ones; I sold them at book fairs quite a few years ago.
When I am allowed to open again I would prefer to open by appointment. The shop is at least 200 yards outside Heckmondwike, please contact me to see if we can fix a mutually convenient time.
I am looking to sell books without jackets (but I don’t have a lot of them) from £1.00 and books with Jackets from £2.50, as I said I don’t have any of the obviously rare ones so the prices don’t go that high.
I did at one time in the past try to catalogue the books listing dates and print codes, but I gave up. I took a lot more pictures but they are lost somewhere on my phone.
