This is a 1951 1st ed ( 4th impression from same year ) hardback copy of Paul Brickhill’s The Great Escape.  This copy features a number of items linked to the escape and the movie of the same name. The book has been enhanced by Steve Teasdale, with a large Remarqued pencil drawing on the fly leaf of legendary actor Steve McQueen - there is a REPRODUCTION Steve McQueen signature underneath the drawing ( the real thing costs thousands ). There is also a Great Escape movie poster glossy bookplate opposite the drawing which has been genuinely signed in pen by Great Escape Movie actor Johnny Leyton. Turn over and there are a further two genuine signed bookplates by actual escapers from the tunnel who were not amongst the fifty who were shot - Paul Royle ( an Australian flyer who was no. 54 out of the tunnel that night ) and Jimmy James (no. 39 out of the tunnel ). Both were recaptured. The book is in very good condition with a rare whole dustjacket which is slightly grubby with minor creasing and a small tear. The pages are browned to the edges due to age. Please note,  the Steve McQueen signature is a replica but all other signatures are guaranteed genuine.
