HOME FIRES IN FRANCE. by Canfield, Dorothy [Fisher] (1879-1958).


Edition: 2nd printing.

New York: Henry Holt, 1918. dj. Hardcover - Canfield accompanied her husband to the front in France during World War I and began working in France among the blind survivors of the war more than a year before the US entered it. These short "stories" are designed to help Americans understand both the French people and the Americans who were working in France. Bound in blue boards, with yellow lettering. 306 pp plus 4 pp of publisher's advertisements. Although the book meets all the points of a first edition, the dust jacket is a later issue, with second printing noted under the review on the front cover (ad for War Savings Stamps on back cover of dj.)

Condition: Near fine in a poor dust jacket (dj is missing about 2 inches at the top of the spine, other wear) - still this is an attractive copy of a book which is very uncommon in dust jacket.
