[Photo Album]: American Soldiers and Nurses in World War I.
New York, Remagen, etc. [circa 1917-1919]. Very Good. Softcover. Oblong small quarto. Measuring 11.25" x 7.25". String-tied flexible leather with "Snap Shots" printed on the front cover. Contains 52 mostly sepia-toned gelatin silver photographs, many measuring 3.5" x 5.5" with a few larger or smaller. Uncaptioned, but a few are real photo post cards and are partially detached so they can be read (albeit with effort). One portrait is signed "P. J. Farrell" and he appears in other images as well. Slight dampstains and creases on the leather wrappers, very good; a little glue bleed-through on a few images, but overall the images are near fine. Largely made up of images of American doughboys, nurses, and family members, mostly on the home front in what is probably Camp Albert Mills on Long Island, although at least one is of several New York doughboys (identified on the back) at "Ramagen-on-the-Rhine" as an occupying force (with one of the soldiers in German uniform and helmet). Perhaps half of the images are of soldiers in uniform, mostly at ease or with friends, several others are of Red Cross nurses, with perhaps the last dozen of family and friends often with American flags or other patriotic paraphernalia in evidence, but at least a couple with some pretty outlandish bathing costumes. A pleasing accumulation of World War One images, mostly on the homefront.
