Suspect. The War Story of a Young Artist accused of Espionage
London, William Heinemann, 1936.
Octavo, viii, 374 pages.
Bright red cloth slightly flecked; first and last pages a little tanned; a fine copy.
Inscribed and signed by the author on an early blank to Ethelwynne Giles. Shirley Cameron Wilson, the author's niece, has written her name at the head of the half-title. Loosely inserted is a flyleaf detached from another (smaller) book; it is signed 'Nell. G. Strawbridge' (Allan's sister and Shirley's mother), and inscribed 'From Allan 1908. For your growing library of classics'. Marginal notes pencilled on some early pages identify Ethelwynne Giles (Julie in the book) as another one of the author's sisters. The early portion of the book relates to Strawbridge's youth spent in Adelaide, where his father was Surveyor-General.
