Bibliographic details

110 pages. Map endpapers. Six sepia-tone plates. "A diary, written in the kitchens of French farmhouses, in muddy dug-outs, and other unromantic places, and sent home to friends from time to time. In most cases the account was written within twenty-four hours of the events described. Its sole justification is that it is a record of facts, experiences, and emotions, before the facts had become tinged with fiction, the experiences had lost their original sharpness, and the emotions had been erased by the moving finger of time." - Preface. William Boyd [1885-1979] recounts his experiences in hellish Allied hospitals of WWI. He went on to become a prominent Canadian pathologist. Publisher's green cloth decorated in black with gilt lettering. Multiple ink stamps upon front free endpaper. Frequent markings to contents, mostly in pencil. Frontispiece almost loose, otherwise moderate wear. Binding intact. A worthy copy of this stark WWI account. Cooke [3] p.159, Enser p.402,
