THE DIARY OF A DEAD OFFICER. Being the Posthumous Papers of Arthur Graeme West.

London, The Herald, 1918. Dark tan paper-covered boards with gilt titles and decoration to front cover and spine. 'The value of the diary lies in its absolute frankness, its stark realism, its obvious truth and sincerity' (from the Introduction). According to Cyril Falls (War Books) 'Arthur Graeme West and his type are ill represented among those who have left personal records of the War [...] he loathed it all, less from hatred of war itself than from dislike of what he called 'the herd' and the herd sprit'. Lacks dustwrapper. Gilt to spine dulled, otherwise a very good copy. pp. xiv, 96. Item #26687

Price: £95.00
