Cold Feet
MAHON, Terence


Category: First Edition

Place/Publisher/Date:
London, Chapman & Hall. 1929.

Description:

First edition; 8vo original cloth, and dust jacket. Cold Feet details the exploits of a man court-martialled for cowardice and due to face the firing squad, only to redeem himself in saving his execution party from a German pilot. The jacket blurb states "is this book fact or fiction/ we must leave it to the reader to decide. It purports to be a human document, written by an officer in the Great War, who was condemned to be shot for cowardice. In effect, it is the study of a naturally sensitive nature to whom the horrors of war offer an impossible problem." A near fine copy with light foxing to the text block, in a very good dust jacket with two very small tears at spine ends, and some surface soiling. A rare First World War novel, especially so in such remarkable condition.

Price £550.00
