Nearly fine condition. The final unfinished novel, never published before. On 21st June 1968 Captain W.E Johns sat down to continue writing his latest Biggles adventure, he was halfway through chapter 12 when tragically without warning he suffered a fatal heart attack. This is the first edition, limited to just 300 copies, of that unpublished novel. Appendix I includes some pages of notes found with the manuscript, Appendix II consists of a suggested chapter synopsis for the rest of the story. Appendix III adds a short passage of narrative that might possibly complete the book. The text of Biggles Does Some Homework and the notes in Appendix I are 100% genuine W.E.Johns material. The introduction and appendices II and III are by Wright and Schofield. Pictorial card wraps. B/w illustrations.
Minimal rubbing to a couple of corners otherwise a fine copy. This is copy no. 44.
