Hi Guys, Need a little help. How long was the book "At Close Quarters printed in hardback? Mine says " Washington 1962. "

Thanks for your help.

Mine, too - copped an ex-library copy (published 1962) some years ago.

Don't know how long it was published in hardcover, but its been re-published, as Amazon is currently (8/19/2019) showing paperback editions with three different covers.

LOL AL,
Somehow that makes perfect sense that your copy would be bound upside down! Rare like an upside down Jenny stamp!

I remember the original edition being published in 1962 soon after JFK's election and a renewed public interest in PT's.

The author was a PT skipper himself.
