Notes

First edition, first impression. With a very appealing provenance: from the library of Admiral of the Fleet John Jellicoe, first Earl Jellicoe (1859-1935), the victor of Jutland, who "deserves his place alongside the heroes of another age" (ODNB), signed "Jellicoe" on the front pastedown. Sir George Grey Aston (1861-1938) was a Royal Marines officer and military correspondent for The Times; in War Lessons, New and Old he discusses the Great War in "three dimensions" (land, sea, air) and what he calls the "fourth dimension" or "the moral factor"; two chapters are devoted to the Dardanelles offensive. Uncommon.
