200,000 Feet on Foula: The Story of the Film 'The Edge Of The World'.
Category: First Edition
London, Faber and Faber. 1938..
First edition; 8vo; original cloth boards and dust jacket. The book of Michael Powell's debut film, inspired by the evacuation of St Kilda. The film was shot in the remote landscape of Foula in the Shetlands. The film won Powell respect and an introduction to Alexander Korda. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket, which just has a little wear to the extremities. A lovely copy, the best I have seen.
