These Men Thy Friends
THOMPSON, Edward


Category: First Edition

Place/Publisher/Date:
London, Alfred Knopf. 1927.

Description:

First edition, 8vo, original cloth boards and dust jacket. Signed presentation inscription from the author to front end paper. Thompson's novel is set on the Eastern Front, during the last eighteen months of the Mesopotamian campaign of the First World War which was fought between the Allies - a mixture of Australian, British and British Empire (mainly Indian) troops - and the Central Powers, mainly from the Ottoman Empire. Fictionalised, it bears some basis in his own experiences. Very good , light spotting to initial pages and to the edge of the text block. The very scarce dust jacket is near fine with just a little wear to the extremities.

Price £800.00
