An Account of the Operations of the American Navy in France during the War with Germany.[n.p] , [1919?] Stock Code: 127092
NotesFirst edition, first printing. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "To Mr. Ralph W. Caine, with the compliments of H. B. Wilson". Henry Braid Wilson (1861-1954) was commander of the United States Naval Forces in France during the First World War. His account is very rare in British institutions, with the Imperial War Museum holding the only known copy, though well represented in the US.
Octavo. Original printed wrappers.
A bit of sunning and creasing around extremities, else a very good copy.
