The Road to En-dor, being an account of how two prisoners of war at Yozgad in Turkey won their way to freedom.

London: John Lane / Bodley Head, 1920. Fourth Edition. Hardcover. Octavo. xvi + 352pp. Red cloth lettered in black on spine. B/w frontis. & plates. Index. The First edition of this true story of how a Welsh officer in the Indian Army, and an Australian in the British forces both escaped from the Yozgad prisoner of war camp in Turkey during the First World War. They apparently faked spiritualist mediumship
- with a home made ouija board, sham séances, and a spirit-guided treasure hunt - and convinced some of their fellow prisoners, and captors, that they were genuine. Following an escape attempt they were declared insane and imprisoned in a Turkish asylum, before being repatriated: thus their incredibly convoluted ruse had worked. Corners and spine ends lightly bumped and rubbed, spine slightly faded, top-edge lightly browned, lower edge foxed, endpapers unevenly browned, inked name on front free endpaper, otherwise a solid, internally-clean VG+ copy (no dust jacket).
