8vo. Original red linson boards pictorially decorated and lettered in black, in pictorial dustwrapper; pp. [viii], 9-192; illustrated with full colour plates; a very good, clean copy with heavy spotting to edges of book block (particuarly fore-edges), otherwise extremely clean, without ownership marks or inscriptions, in an unusually bright, clean and attractive, unclipped dustwrapper (8s 6d) with a neat owner's name and date (21.3.70) to front flap, some dusting to lower panel and rubbing to spine.
First edition. Biggles and his colleagues fly off to investigate some strange happenings on the remote South Pacific island of Oratovca. Although supposedly uninhabited, ships have been failing to return from there, and sailors' yarns tell of some mysterious goings on.
