SASSOON, Siegfried (Siegfried Loraine), 1886-1967 : THE WAR POEMS OF SIEGFRIED SASSOON.
London : William Heinemann, 1919. First edition : [one of 2,000 copies]. A collection of sixty-four poems, a dozen or so previously unpublished and forming, in Sassoon’s words, his definitive “tract against war”.
SASSOON, Siegfried (Siegfried Loraine), 1886-1967 : [THE SHERSTON TRILOGY] MEMOIRS OF A FOX-HUNTING MAN / MEMOIRS OF AN INFANTRY OFFICER / SHERSTON’S PROGRESS.
London : Faber & Gwyer / Faber & Faber, (1928-1936). A first edition set of the three separately published volumes – “This is fiction, but with a difference – for the author, who wishes at present to remain anonymous, has himself lived the life of a hero” – the first two volumes were published anonymously, the first in an edition of just 1,500 copies. “The most satisfying piece of autobiography to be published in our time. All the equipment of a novelist is Sassoon’s. But what novel could equal in fascination this true story? The three books give him a place unique in English letters” (Howard Spring in the Evening Standard, 3rd September 1936).
