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 (xxx); pp. 123, [2, colophon]; wrapper with marginal fraying and repaired tear, front fly-leaf replaced, otherwise very good.
First edition, first printing 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, homest stories' (publisher's catalogue).
