Item #66897 Bear Island. Alistair MACLEAN.

Bear Island.

London: Collins, 1971. [Murder Mystery] FIRST EDITION, first impression. Octavo (22 x 14cm), pp.286 [2]. Publisher's dark green cloth with gilt titles to spine. With the pictorial dust-jacket illustrated by Norman Weaver. A crisp, clean copy, with a touch of sunning to jacket spine. Price-clipped. Very good. Seafaring suspense novel set in the arduous North Atlantic, in which a documentary film unit occupies a desolate Norwegian Island, home to an apparently abandoned former German U-Boat base. This wartime graveyard of the Arctic holds many secrets... Basis for the 1979 Don Sharp-directed film starring Donald Sutherland, Vanessa Redgrave, Richard Widmark, Christopher Lee and Lloyd Bridges. In the 50s and 60s, Alistair Maclean was one of the chief rivals of Ian Fleming, both authors sharing a Scottish heritage and a Royal Navy background. Item #66897
