"On the Remainder of Our Front ---"
[STURGES, Robert Simon] Private No. 940


Category: First Edition

Place/Publisher/Date:
London, Harrison & Sons. 1917.

Description:

First edition, 8vo, original cloth and dust jacket. A rare early memoir from Robert Simon Sturges, where he recounts his time in the Tirst World War on the Western Front between 1915-1916. He states in the introduction that it is "written from the point of view of the most important person in the war…the private soldier…No battles and no V.C.s in my story, but an attempt to fill a small corner of the picture outlined day by day in the official account: 'On the remainder of our front there is nothing to report.' " A very good copy with the endpapers browned, the extremities scuffed. The rare dust jacket is toned to the spine with tears at spine head, foot and upper section.

Price £600.00
