Inscribed to his colleague in the Air Ministry intelligence branch: 'Geoffrey Harmsworth, continuing the pleasant association at P.R.3 with best wishes H.E. Bates'. This is the first Guild Edition of Bates' hugely successful pseudonymous stories of men in the air force that he was commissioned to write on behalf of the RAF. A near fine, crisp copy in publisher's red printed wraps, fading to spine. During the second world war Bates had been commissioned by the intelligence branch of the Air Ministry to write these stories under the name 'Flying Officer "X"' which were printed in very substantial numbers to support the war effort. This is an excellent association copy.
