Biggles Flies to Work ; Some Unusual Cases of Biggles and His Air Police
True 1st edition. Blue Boards . Hidden date shows the printing date of March 1963, the true 1st was printed in March 1963. The vast majority of copies, that I have come across over the years, are reprints as are most of the copies offered by many dealers as "1st editions". I have assisted with & written several articles on identification of Biggles 1st editions and have considerable authority on the topic . This copy has an unclipped jacket which has considerable edge wear, light foxing, creasing and a small loss at the head of the spine. There is page toning through the book and considerable writing to the front free endpaper in Biro (Including Xmas 1963 gift marking). There is a number to the half title and a name stamp to the back board. There is no SBN in the book. Jacket lists to Biggles Flies to work on the rear panel. There is no price in new pence all of which are pointers to a later printing of the jacket. Jacket is in a new loose protective sleeve
