8vo., First Edition, with frontispiece, and illustrations and facsimiles in the text; handsomely bound in red full crushed morocco, back gilt with five raised bands, second and fourth compartments lettered and ruled in gilt, all other compartments tooled and ruled in gilt, gilt top, hand-made endpapers, a most attractive copy ideal as a gift or for presentation. The first of Reid's two famous accounts culminates with the author's 'home run' in 1942. Includes a detailed list of escapees. Reid's classic of POW life and escape began a virtual sub-industry (of astonishingly variable quality) including dozens of later books, several feature films, countless magazine pieces and a long-running TV series. There is, however, no mistaking the calibre of the original. Now that Colditz is to become (in part at least) a youth hostel, interest in its wartime role will only grow. Enser, p. 151.
