Item #60189 Pastoral. Nevil SHUTE.


London: William Heinemann, 1944. [Wartime Adventure] LEATHER-BOUND FIRST EDITION. Octavo (19 x 13cm), pp.[6] 218 [4]. Recently re-bound in green half calf, with raised bands, gilt titles to black label on spine, and green cloth over boards. Edges toned, otherwise a crisp, clean copy in an attractive new leather binding. Very good. From an Oxfordshire air base Wellington bombers fly missions into Germany during the Second World War. Only a handful of crews have survived the war long enough to become experienced. Peter Marshall is captain of one of these crews, but when he falls in love with Gervase, her rebuff nearly costs him his concentration and his life. Their relationship blossoms when he has only five more missions to go, and as they tick by the tension mounts. Item #60189
