These Men Thy Friends signed by Edward Thompson 1st / 1st 1929
London: Alfred Knopf (1929). First UK edition in very good condition. The eye catching dust wrapper by artist Elizabeth Pyke is very complete with no chips or tears. The spine is browned a tad. The book is in quite nice condition with sporadic foxing marks to the text block. On the front free end paper the author has signed and dated. He’s also written an inscription or written lines from the book.. His inscription ends with “these men thy friends”.
Thompson’s novel is based in the last eighteen months of the Mesopotamian campaign. A fictionalised account albeit based on his own experiences. A rare title with the wrapper and especially so signed, dated and lined.
