About This Item

Sydney, NSW: Holland & Stephenson, 1949. First printing. Hardcover. Good+/Good+. Small octavo bound in green cloth with plain tan wrapper printed in red. Signed by the author on the title page. Additionally, half-title incription from Sergeant H. H. Shelley of the 2nd Light Horse Brigade to Major General Robert Pollock, a British officer who served with the Australian Forces at Gallipoli. The inscription reads: "To / Major General / R. V. Pollock / from his old sergeant - / H H Shelley / In rememberence of / Holdsworth - Egypt / and au zone [?] / 1914-1915 / Melbourne April 1951". A firsthand account of the Australian Light Horse Campaigns in Gallipoli and Palestine during World War I, the book is perhaps notable as well in that - although authentic - no unit or individual is mentioned by name, the author instead using nicknames such as The Bushman, Tom Blood and Snow (to whom the book is dedicated). Foreward by Lt-Colonel M. F. Bruxner. Corners heavily bumped with sunning to edges, but binding is intact and contents clean with some dogearing and soiling to top edge, jacket worn and chipped at extremities with soiling and an ink stain to rear panel. Overall a good plus copy in like jacket of a scarce title. [8] 9-252.
