On The Remainder of Our Front by Robert Simon Sturges 1st / 1st 1917
London: Harrison and Sons (1917) The UK first edition and first print. With the very scarce dust wrapper. This is a very good copy. The wrapper has a tear about a third of the way down the spine of around 3cms. There is minor wear to the spine ends and corners. The spine is browned. The boards are fairly brittle with some minor wear along the edges. The pages have browned with age. There’s no previous owner’s ink and very little foxing marks. Overall very good.
A rare early memoir from Robert Simon Sturges, where he recounts his time on the western front between 1915-1916. He says in his introduction that there are no heroic deeds or battles just the every-day experiences of an infantry soldier in France.
