The Bomber Gipsy by A.P. Herbert 1st Enlarged Edition 1919
London: Methuen & Co. Ltd. (1919). The (2nd) revised and enlarged edition. This copy is in very near fine condition. The jacket fine. The book has a small amount of browning and a smattering of foxing marks to the text block. It is in highly collectible condition.
A collection of Herbert’s war poetry that initially appeared in Punch. Poems include ‘The Ballade of Incipent Lunacy’ that involved a cast of many soldiers of different rank all drifting in and out of a rest hall finishing their skit with the same line “I must be going mad today”. A rare title to find in such nice condition.
