The project, according to the author's Foreword, was inspired by an incident during World War I when Farrington passed a group of friendly Cuirassiers in Ain, France, during a stroll. Though Farrington had already published a book of war poetry, (Poems from France, 1920), his favored medium of expression was hymn writing. Octavo (20cm.); original maroon blind-ruled buckram, upper cover and spine lettered in gilt; 142,[2](ads)pp.; illus., including photographs. Fine. Signed and inscribed "Very Cordially Yours / Harry Webb Farrington" on front free endpaper.
