An Infant in Arms Signed by Graham H. Greenwell 1st / 1st 1972
London: Allen Lane, The Penguin Press (1972). A near fine copy and first edition of the re-issue published in 1972. Greenwell’s biography was first published in 1935 by Lovatt Dickson and is extremely scarce. The wrapper has only very minor wear and it is overall a nice copy. It is rare as it has been signed by Greenwell to the front free end paper. He has written “with compliments and best wishes of the author in memory of the great war 1914-1918.”
This is the biography of Greenwell, enlisted into the war and the western front at only 18 years old. Within this biography are his letters to his mother. He recalls how much he enjoyed the war (a contrarian view) and details his service. A rare title as it has been signed by him.
