JOHNS, Captain W.E. (author). STEAD (illustrator). Biggles Makes Ends Meet. London; Hodder And Stoughton. 1957.
8vo. Original dark red cloth pictorially blocked and lettered in black to upper cover and spine, preserved in pictorial dustwrapper; pp. [vi], 7-192; with frontispiece and 5 other full colour plates; a fine and crisp copy, both internally and externally, protected by a near fine, unclipped, dustwrapper (8s 6d) with faint dusting to lower panel and two minute nicks to top edge; an elusive title.
First edition. Biggles and his friends Algy, Ginger and Bertie are called on to investigate "robbery on the high seas", but piracy is only one of the many challenges they face.
