Galahad of the Air - Trevor Wallace 1937 - Wright & Brown, London - First Edition A scarce between-the-wars aviation thriller set in New Guinea, and featuring the daring pilot Daniel James who bears the responsibility of maintaining law and order in the district surrounding a mining camp as the dastardly Germans seek to sow discontent amongst the local tribes.   Octavo (book size 18.7x13cm), pp. 252 [4 (publisher’s ads)]. In publisher’s orange cloth, spine lettered and ruled in orange. Dust jacket with original price of ‘2/6 NET’ to spine partly covered by later publisher’s price sticker of ‘3/6’, it would be fair to assume that this is because this was issued just as the publisher put the prices of the next series up to ‘3/6’ (usually a later sticker is put on to discount the price), and with very light colour touch-up to front flap, neatly trimmed along lower edge.   Condition: Near fine, some light spotting to first and last few pages, in very good bright dust jacket with very light colour touch-up to front flap, some wear to corners and spine ends, lower edge trimmed.   Ref: 110240   Price: HK$ 500
