HALF-SAFE ACROSS THE ATLANTIC BY JEEP , FACTUAL, BEN CARLIN
15 BEN CARLIN HALF-SAFE ACROSS THE ATLANTIC BY JEEP , FACTUAL
LONDON ANDRE DEUTSCH 1955 1st Edition Hardcover Good Good Book RAY KING 
Turquoise Green cloth boards with gilt titles to spine. 215 x 150 mm approx.Route Maps to end papers. 280 pp. 11 further line maps in text, 3 diagrams and 51 b/w photographic plates (49 Listed). Record of an incredible journey undertaken in 1950 from Montreal via Halifax Nova Scotia- the Atlantic Ocean- to Cap Juby North Africa and thence to Birmingham England via Gibraltar, Paris, Brussels, Hamburg, Malmo back to Brussels, London in an amphibious Jeep. Born in Northam, Western Australia in 1912 the author enlisted in the Indian Army in Oct 1940 and had his first encounter with an amphibious jeep soon after the war in India. Casually he turned to a friend and said "with a bit of titivation you could go round the world in one of those." The idea took root and became an obsession. This leg of his circumnavigation of the globe was undertaken with his American born wife Elinor and was not without its mishaps. His direct and racy style, wry understatements and humour make for an eminently readable book. Despite this sales were poor and it is now quite uncommon. The ABC News web site fills in the remainder of the story. As for "Half State" it is on permanent display at Carlin's old school Guildford Grammar in Perth W.Australia. Good/Good (Book- Colour fade to cloth at extremities, no notable shelf wear or soiling. Previous owner name to free front end paper. Dust Jacket- a little general shelf soiling, rubbed and with some loss principally to head and tail of spine and with a 15mm approx tear to tail at rear spine fold.
