The Road to Ruin

£29.99

Product description

This short volume of poems was published in 1933 and reflects the strength of Sassoon's feelings about war and government. It contains a short foreword by Albert Einstein, also referring to those who regard war as a method of personal advancement.
The dust jacket is present but most of its spine is missing and it is in two pieces, the deep red binding is soiled and rubbed at the corners and spine, some pages are cut shorter than others. Aside from minimal foxing on the inside boards, all is well: the block is tight, text clear and the poems within certainly give pause for thought.
