A light and genial romance. Ian Hay (1876–1952) was a soldier, schoolmaster and author best known for his Great War account of Army life, The First Hundred Thousand.
Good condition. There is fading to the cloth spine and foxing to the endpapers and pastedowns. The main body of text is in good, clean condition.
