New York: Viking, 1935. Gilt cloth. Spine and top edges a bit sunned, gilding has a bit of patina, as usual, otherwise a very good or better copy in lightly spine-sunned dust jacket with a bit of minor fraying at the lower edge toward the spine and trivial edgewear. Neat pencil name on first blank. First published edition of the author's first and only novel, an account of the victimization of three French line soldiers by commanders intent on saving their own reputations. It was preceded by five hundred promotional copies of printed sheets bound in wrappers, untitled. Signed, in ink, by the author on the first blank. Sidney Howard undertook a dramatic adaptation of some note in 1935, but the 1957 film adaptation by Stanley Kubrick did much to remind the post- war public of its virtues. It remains one of the most widely known anti-war novels of the pre-WWII years. From the distinguished WWI Fiction Collection of Barry Maurer, with his laid in bookplate (see our catalogue 150).
