WARD-JACKSON, C.W. No Bombs at All. Some Short Stories of the Royal Air Force … with Wood Engravings by Biro. London: Sylvan Press, [1944].

8vo. Original cloth decorated and lettered in gilt, illustrated dust-wrappers (not price-clipped); pp. 123, [4, press reviews and publisher's catalogue]; wrapper with light marginal fraying, light spotting to endpapers, a few leaves with a fold, due to binding mishap, otherwise very good.
Second edition (marked as such on the inside of the front flap only; actually second print run) of a very appealing mid-century and war time book production, illustrated and designed by Biro. Sylvan Press specialized in publishing on the RAF, and the Sunday Times reviewed the stories in this book. 'They are documentary in the sense that they are obviously founded on fact and observation … In a word, these are good, honest stories' (press rewiew).
