From the front flap: "It all starts quite innocently with a cargo of wheat which the truculent captain is loading in the port of Savonia, but before the end has been reached the British flag has been insulted, the British Navy called out to rescue the Empire, the dictator of Savonia has been kidnapped, a torrid Spanish dancer has become involved, questions have been asked in the House of Commons and the choleric, colorful, obstinate Captain Samson has become the unwilling, protesting hero of the British public, and is forced to permit himself to be publicly kissed on both cheeks, while he receives medals for his expansive chest."

Some edgewear, faint spotting to front cover, tanning, previous owner's signature/date on front end paper, in dust jacket w/sunned spine, some edgewear, chipping to corners/spine ends, pieces torn from top spine, general wear.
