More Fragments from France,, Bairnsfather, Captain Bruce
202 Bairnsfather, Captain Bruce More Fragments from France,
London, England The Bystander c 1917 First Edition; First Impression paperback Very Good with no dust jacket Illustrated by Author 
Color inset on front cover. Cover is detached from staples but both front and back are there. Contents clean with great illustrations. Bruce Bairnsfather, the son of Thomas Bairnsfather and Amelia Every, was born in Muree, India, in 1888. Bruce's father was a Lieutenant in the Bengal Infantry. After attending schools in India and Stratford-upon-Avon, Bruce joined the British Army. Bairnsfather found army life boring and left the Royal Warwickshire Regiment and enrolled as an art student at the Hassall School of Art. After completing his training he produced advertising posters for products such as Lipton Tea, Players's Tobacco and Flowers Beer. On the outbreak of the First World War Bairnsfather rejoined the Royal Warwickshire Regiment and within a couple of weeks had been promoted to the rank of lieutenant. After the Battle of Mons the British Army was desperately short of trained soldiers and Bairnsfather was quickly rushed to the Western Front where he served with people such as Captain Bernard Montgomery and Lieutenant A. A. Milne. Bairnsfather, who was put in charge of a Maxim Machine-Gun section, was shocked by trench-life and even refused to take leave, fearing that once he left, he would find it too difficult to return. During the Christmas of 1914, Bairnsfather came close to being court-martialed after joining German soldiers in what later became known as the Christmas Truce. While on the Western Front, Bairnsfather drew pictures of trench life and in 1915 The Bystander magazine began publishing his drawings. Bairnsfather's work was extremely popular with the soldiers in the trenches and this helped sales of the magazine. This book is protected by an archival quality sleeve to maintain present condition. Scarce. ; Illustrations; Oblong 4to 11" - 13; 44 pages

217 Bamforth, Charles A. & Richard A. Bamforth Iron Jaw, A Skipper Tells His Story, Charles N. Bamforth 1895-1975 (Signed by all authors)
Dorrance Pub Co 2002 0805954171 / 9780805954173 First Edition; First Impression Paperback Near Fine with no dust jacket 
Signed by both authors. The extraordinary life of Captain Charles N. Bamforth spanned most of the twentieth century, beginning with his childhood at the turn of the century and continuing through his retirement and death during the Cold War era. During his sixty years at sea, Captain Bamforth experienced the Depression, two World Wars, and a number of troublesome labor disputes. Through it all, he also had to navigate loneliness, confusion, and marriage to both his family and the sea. His story is told in meticulous detail and with refreshing honesty. Captain Bamforths handwritten diaries, logs, and personal letters all have been carefully compiled by his sons, Charles and Richard, and reveal as much about the hard-working, unassuming courage of the captain as they do about the turbulent times during which he lived. Rare. ; 1.2 x 8.8 x 6 Inches; 436 pages; p; Signed by All Authors
