Boston: Little, Brown and Co., 1918. Plum cloth, lettered in gilt. Gilding a bit dull, but a very good copy, without dust jacket. With the bookplate of John Quinn. First US edition. Laid in is a brief a.l.s. from Dunsany, not to Quinn, on the letterhead of the Royal Iniskilling Fusiliers, North Raglan Barracks, Devonport, 19 March 1919, forwarding his autograph, signed "Your sincerely Dunsany." Dunsany served as a Captain with the Royal Iniskilling Fusiliers, and was wounded in 1916. Some of these tales are uncomfortable attempts at mingling fantasy and patriotic propaganda.
