The Patriot's Progress by Henry Williamson 1st / 1st 1930

The Patriot's Progress by Henry Williamson 1st / 1st 1930


London: Geoffrey Bles (1930). First UK edition in very good condition. The complete wrapper is browned along the spine and the outer edges. It is not price clipped. There are a few small marks to the back panel. The book has very occasional spotting but otherwise is very presentable. Overall a very good copy.


A fictional account of a private on the western front. Brought to life with many attractive lino-cuts throughout by William Kermode. Private John Bullock represents ‘Every Soldier’ or ‘Any Soldier’, and it must be noted that it is no coincidence that the title echoes John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress. But the author does not follow the path of onward progress that Bunyan’s pilgrim Christian took. For his central character ‘progress’ is an ironic allusion: there is no progress.
