London: Arthur L. Humphreys, 1920. Full Leather. First Edition. ix, 67 pp. 12mo. Beautiful, brown full leather binding with five raised bands at spine, gold embossed titling, interlocking initials of "J R", which we assume is for Josephine Redding to whom the book is dedicated. Rust-colored silk endpapers with a three-line gold border on the pastedown, bound by Gruel and marked as such in gold at the foot of the front pastedown. Top edge of text block gilt, silk ribbon marker. Clean and crisp within, includes frontispiece photograph of Anne-Marie and her dog, Fop; and a second photograph of Anne-Marie in her Red Cross nurse's uniform on opposite p. 56. Tipped in at rear is a reproduction of the condolence letter, in French, from the French Red Cross to Anne-Marie's family. Fine.
Charming story of Anne-Marie and her dog. Anne-Marie became ill and died with her dog beside her. Inscribed on first free endpaper by Myra Redding in 1921; we assume she was related in some way to Josephine Redding to whom the book is dedicated.
