Detailed Product Description
London, 1924, 1st edition. 225 pp. Travel book featuring the architecture and landscapes of Britain and Europe. Hardcover, No Dust Jacket, Near Fine.
 
From the website of the John Rylands University Library of Manchester: ''Charles Edward Montague (1867-1928), novelist, playwright and Manchester Guardian journalist. He was on the staff of the newspaper from 1890 until 1925, except for the years 1914-1919 when he served in the First World War.
 
''His most prolific period as a writer was the 1920s with works such as Disenchantment (1922), Fiery Particles (1923), The Right Place (1924), Rough Justice (1926) and Action (1928).''
 
From the website of The Montague Millennium: ''Journalist; author of a number of acclaimed books; 24th Battalion Royal Fusiliers, 1914; full sergeant (grenadier-sergeant), 1915; lieutenant; captain (intelligence ); press-officer; after the war one of the authors in the 20's that wrote devastatingly of WWI.
 
''Disenchantment was his rather philosophical book about World War I combat. If even a fraction of what people have written about him is true, he seems to have been a rare natural soldier. In the early years of the war, he was a combat engineer fighting in the trenches. Later he was promoted into intelligence, and finally an escort for battle-field VIPs.''
