c/o Postmaster

by Corporal Thomas R. St. George

Condition: Very good


New York: Thomas Y. Crowell Co., 1943. First Edition. Cardboard covers. Very good. A good first edition. Shelfwear and bumped/rubbed corners. Toning to pastedowns. Previous owner's inscription marked out on first free endpaper. Laid in is a small pamphlet from WW II entitled "One came back," about Torpedo Squadron 8. No dust jacket. 194 pp. 5 x 8 inches tall. Duodecimo.. The readers of the San Francisco Chronicle may have "met" St George already. Now the rest of the country has a chance to share the experiences of a group of American soldiers in Australia, and of Corporal St George in particular. Nothing hilarious -- though mildly along the lines of Private Hargrove; light reporting on the crossing, on first impressions of the country and the people, on non-streamlined conditions, on the three essentials -- food, beer and girls, on amusements and diversions, and finally on the experience of soldiering. There has been very little first hand experience from Australia, and this should appeal to families of men in the land down under." Kirkus Review 16 September 1943
