First edition. Low quality war-time production is no doubt a major factor in the elusiveness of this book, just five locations on COPAC – BL, NLS, NLW, Oxford and Cambridge – to which OCLC adds not a one. Described in a contemporary review in The Spectator as “the story of a young lady who is more attractive than high-minded. She finds redemption partly in some very sketchy war work, but chiefly through her love for a blinded soldier” (6 October, 1917). An unlovely copy, redeemed perhaps solely by the scarcity of the title.

Octavo. Original green cloth, lettered in white on the front board and spine. Worn, browned and shaken, short tear without loss to the title page, a good copy at best.
