Inscribed by its war-hero author to the founders of Barter Books: 'To Stuart & Mary Manley... Γ Ψυχοντάκης [G Pyschoundakis] 14.10.1944' One of the couple has noted the correct date above the inscription on the half title - 'Nr Starros the Akrotiri Peninsula October 1994'. Inside the lower cover there is further annotation transliterating names of the figures in the book and an explanatory note from the Manleys: 'Chryssa knew the author - took this book to him'. Otherwise this paperback Greek edition is in very good condition. Psychoundakis was a Greek Resistance fighter on Crete during the Second World War who worked closely with Patrick Leigh Fermor who subsequently translated these memoirs. His signature is uncommon.
