Four Infantrymen On The Western Front 1918 by Ernst Johannsen 1st 1930
London: Methuen & Co. Ltd (1930). First UK edition of this classic anti war novel. It is particularly scarce for a copy to have its dust wrapper. The wrapper is in nice condition with only minor wear and very little loss. The spine is a shade browned and there is the odd mark. The book has a tiny previous booksellers sticker on the inside board. There is some light foxing to some of the pages and text block. Overall a very good copy of this scarce wrappered title.
Johannsen’s tale of four infrantrymen serving on the western front during the last few days of the war.In lengthy conversations, the infantrymen question the meaning of the war.
It realised worldwide acclaim being translated into 11 languages and it was serialised in several periodicals at the same time. A scarce first UK edition with its dust wrapper.
