Description:
New York and London: D. Appleton-Century Company, 1942. First Edition. Wraps. Very good. Illustrated with photographs by Major F.A.R. Leitao, this manual for women shows defenses against various attack, holds, and wandering hands, including ways to use an umbrella and a matchbox for defensive purposes. Fairbairn "developed hand-to-hand combat methods for the Shanghai Police during the interwar period, as well as for the allied special forces during World War II" and has been suggested as the inspiration for Q Branch in the James Bond series (Wiki). In his introduction, the author writes, "It goes without saying that a woman should always know how to protect herself. In wartime - in America at war - this is doubly so." This copy bears the bookplate of Stewart and Annette Johnston, and is inscribed to Annette from someone named Roland, "On entering the Armed Forces - 1942" with a further note on the rear inside cover: "A hat pin is effective, too. I've heard". It's likely the gift inscription is in… Read more
