The Dark Forest.
London, Martin Secker. 1916. - First edition; 8vo; original cloth and dust jacket. Bookplate of famous American book collector Ingle Barr to front pastedown. Laid in is signed manuscript letter on MGM letter headed paper from the author to an unnamed recipient asking them to give this book to his mother. Walpole was deemed ineligible for military service in World War I because of his poor eyesight. He volunteered to work in Russia, first for the Red Cross and won the Georgian Medal for rescuing a wounded soldier. Later he headed the Anglo-Russian Propaganda Bureau during the Russian Revolution. He drew on this experience for The Dark Forest. Very good, a little wear to the extremities and a little spotting to the preliminaries. A pencil note to the front pastedown states that this is supposedly one of forty copies saved from a warehouse fire. The dust jacket is lightly chipped and darkened to the spine. Enclosed in a grey cloth folding box.
