There is an essay by J.E. Crawford Flitch and then several plates of Nevinson's works. Nevinson joined the army in the autumn of 1914 and went to Flanders as a mechanic and ambulance driver. He was invalided out in 1916 but was to become one of the great war artists, producing some of the most harrowing images of the conflict, using his experiences for his paintings. The full colour frontispiece has its original guard (the iconic image is shown as the title page of this catalogue) followed by 24 black and white plates of his works. The Frontispiece is not signed. Very Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 1919.
