Whisky Galore by Compton Mackenzie

Whisky Galore


Compton Mackenzie

1st UK Edition 1947 Chatto and Windus.

A generally v/good copy of Compton Mackenzies best known novel.

The notoriously fragile dustwrapper has chipping to the edges but is clean and unclipped showing 9/6d. The book's red boards are unfaded but the outer page edges are foxed though internally pages are clean if slightly toned. The top page edge is in dark red and the bottom untrimmed

A well written, humerous account of wartime bootlegging on the Western Isles of Scotland.
