Description

This is a most interesting book to anybody studying the Great War - the War to End All Wars (is anybody listening?) - World War 1. It was written in 1918 when the combatants were waiting for the American forces to reach the particular sector where the soldier writing from was stationed. The books is actually a collection of letters to home from the front lines and as such gives a first-hand look at life then and there.

The book is bound in green cloth covered boards with the title and author's name in gilt on the front board. There was gilt lettering on the spine, but that has long since worn off. There is a bit of bumping on the top and bottom of the spine and the corners are bumped, but otherwise, the covers are in excellent condition. The binding is tight with no signatures loose. There is no foxing, staining or damage of any kind through the book. The inside of the front and back covers are printed with a map of the area of the front line discussed.

The book was published in 1918 by the Musson Book Company of Toronto and is a first printing. It is 4 1/4" by 7" in size and is 277 pages long.
