SONGS AND SLANG OF THE BRITISH SOLDIER: 1914- 1918
by [World War I]: Brophy, John, and Eric Partridge [comps]
London: Eric Partridge Ltd at the Scholartis Press, 1930. Large octavo. Orange cloth, stamped in gilt. Lower edge slightly darkened, two leaves roughly opened at gutter with tiny marginal loss, otherwise very good in shelfworn and lightly chipped dust jacket. Second, revised and enlarged edition of this interesting and important collection, like its predecessor limited to 1000 copies. The songs were unfortunately bowdlerized a bit with dashes, and it seems likely it would have been impossible to include the most colorful slang expressions, but a valuable work nonetheless and somewhat uncommon.
