First edition, first printing. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "G.R., E.W. Dec. 21 1915". The recipient, Georges Rodier, was the administrator of the Société de Secours aux Blessés Militaires, a charitable organisation devoted to helping wounded servicemen. He was a friend of Henry James, and met Wharton when they were both in Algiers in 1914. Wharton was one of the few foreigners allowed to travel to the front lines in France during the First World War, and this volume compiles six articles on the war that were originally published in Scribner's during 1915.
