MEN WHO MARCH AWAY:  POEMS OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR., Parsons, I.M., edited with introduction by.
22 Parsons, I.M., edited with introduction by. MEN WHO MARCH AWAY: POEMS OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR.
Chatto & Windus, London, 1968, 4th impression. 
192 pp, 8vo (8 11/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Ex-library. "The first world war produced a far greater body of good poetry than any other war in which Britain has been engaged. Now, from a distance of fifty years, we can get both the war an d the poetry in perspective, accepting not only the ordeals and disillusionments suffered by soldier poets, but also the 'visions of glory' which fired some of them in 1914. Mr. Parsons has made a broad but rigorous selection of the poetry w h i c h r e sulted. His anthology contains work by the famous front-line poets - Owen Rosenberg, Sassoon, Edward Thomas, Blunden, Graves - and by others, less known today, who wrote truthfully and well out of their experience. There are poems, to o, b y ol d er p oets who were deeply affected by the war though they could not take an active part in it - Hardy, Yeats, Kipling, Lawrence, and Walter de la Mare. Mr. Parsons has divided his anthology into seven sections which reflect not only t he cho no log ic al pr ogress of the war, but also the changing emotional attitudes of poets towards it, and prefaced it with a critical introduction." Ex-library copy with areas of surface paper loss at top/bottom of pastedown endpapers, several pa ges wit h a cor ner crea se, sixteen poems with tiny pen 'x' mark against title, one poem title has minor pen correction, library stamp/numbers on copyright page, library stamp and very light soiling on fore-edge of textblock, minor wrinkling at top /bot tom of s pine . Dust jacket is price clipped, has very light edge wrinkling, ghost label mark on spine, spine is faded, panels slightly faded. Good reading copy only.

23 St. Laurent, Cecil. Translated by Coburn Gilman. Cover art by Freeman Eliot. THE SECRETS OF CAROLINE CHERIE.
Dell, New York, 1959. 
288 pp, mass market paperback. "It was Talleyrand himself who sent Caroline to the Russian Imperial Court as France's secret agent. But when the Russian prince who entertained her learned the truth, only her own unsurpassable bewitchery could get her out." "More (and better) of France's favorite boudoir heroine, in the racy, rollicking sequel to 'The Affairs of Caroline Cherie', 'Caroline Cherie', 'Caroline Coquette'. In which the French successor to Amber, Kitty, and Duchess Hotspur mixes with war and politics - and finds both her patriotism (and her marital fidelity) severely strained." Interior - very light browning to pages, otherwise clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - very light edge wear, ve r y l i g h t rubbing - mainly on rear cover, front hinge crease, soft ctrease on rear cover, light creases on spine. Very Good-

27 Wilson, Lois. TURNING THE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN: A MEMOIR.
Toronto Doubleday Canada 1989 0385252277 / 9780385252270 First Edition Very Good Very Good+ 
258 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs. "Throughout her life Lois Wilson has fought against convention, apathy and inequality. Born in Winnipeg in 1925, in 1965 she became one of the first women, married and with children, to receive ordination as a United Church minister. In 1980 she was elected moderator, making her the first woman in Canada to lead a mainstream denomination. She worked as an indefatigable campaigner for the 'social gospel', bringing the church to the wider community through innovative programs of public participation. (This) is a memoir of conscience, faith and love - be it Wilson's love for her family, her community, her lifelong friend Margaret Laurence, or for the oppressed and outcast around the globe. Never one to shy away from controversy, she challenges us with her views on feminism, homosexual ordination, disarmament, ecumenism, and with her call for a radical restructuring of the world economy. The Christian gospel demands an active, compassionate engagement with the world. Lois Wilson opens our eyes to what that really means." Light wrinkling at top of spine, shallow bump on top edge of rear board. Dust jacket has small corner crease on rear flap, minor wrinkling at top of spine.
