Map in text. 8vo, blue cloth with silver lettering to spine. "In mid-November 1918,the world was too much concerned with the news of the armistice to pay muc h heed to the desperate S.O.S. of a British tramp ship, adrift on the Atlantic. The ship was the S.S. Normandier, bound for Canada and now drifting helplessly in the full fury of a winter's gale, her engines dead, her officers and entire crew either dead or deathly ill. By the time the U.S.S. Sherman and Antigone came to her rescue, only two men on board were still conscious. One of these was the young wireless operator, [the author], who now, many years later has brought to life again the full story of the strange ordeal of the Normandier -- a true story of one of the most horrifying and heroic episodes ever to occur in the annals of steam-shipping." - from the dj. Name, else very good in rubbed, worn, unclipped dust jacket. 20.00
