Printing Details

Here are two first UK editions on the Suez Crisis, an invasion of Egypt in late 1956 by Israel, followed by the United Kingdom and France. The aims were to regain Western control of the Suez Canal and to remove Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser, who had just nationalised the canal. Both books are hardbacks in dustwrapper.

1. The Suez War, by Paul Johnson, with an introduction by Aneurin Bevan. (Macgibbon & Kee, London, 1957). Good condition but tanned pages and with foxing to the page edges and wrapper's edges.

2. Secrets of Suez, by Merry and Serge Bromberger, translated from the French by James Cameron. (Pan Books / Sidgwick & Jackson, London, 1957). A decent copy, with some foxing to the page edges.


Both books are in strong readable condition, with foxing and tanning but otherwise clean.
