New York: Moffat, Yard and Company. 1911. First. First e3dition. 12mo. Printed papercovered boards. Light wear at the spine ends, else near fine. Inscribed by the author to his uncle Samuel Wright: "Uncle from Reginald 12/13/11." Kauffman eventually inherited his uncle's library, and this consequently became his own copy. From a large collection of books we purchased from the author's library. Kauffman was born and lived in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, although he also maintained homes in Switzerland and Bath, Maine. After graduating from Harvard in 1900, he wrote dozens of stories, mysteries, children's books, and non-fiction titles. He was the editor of the Bangor, Maine Daily News from 1941-1947. His Rideout novel, The House of Bondage was widely praised, specifically by Emma Goldman, as the first serious attempt to explore the problem of women and prostitution. This book is a rumination on the inclination of people to use patriotism as an excuse to engage in warfare, in the years leading up to the Great War. . (Inventory #: 409908)
