Binding   Softcover

Seller ID   7542

This is a book size pamphlet of black and whote photographs from WW Ther are 114 pages stapled in a medium brown art paper cover with turquoise type on the cover with the title "The Absolute Truth". There is no title or copyright page, however most of the photos have the words "U. S. Official" printed below the image on the left side. The second image has a printed logo in the upper right corner on the image that says "SIGNAL CORPS USA. The photos are of mostly human remains. Some of the photos include survivors taking care of the bodies. Below each photo are printed words such as Dust to Dust, Aviators' Sacrifice, Our Boys, Shell Shattered. The cover has a closed split at the bottom of the spine fold in the cover - now repaired with archival mateirals from the interior. The price is is low because of a diamond shaped stain that is quite visible on the interior pages and faintly seen on the cover. Dampness may have caused the brown paper to leak a light brown color. The diamond shape if about three inches in height on both sides of the upper staple. At the center of the book - the stain is less than a inch across. There is a former owner name and number on the first blank page in pencil. These photos are startling in part because there is no text (other than words described above) and because they were taken in close-ups. WW 1 is assumed because of the look of uniforms, including nurses, and because the word Argonne is included in one of the captions.. Military photographs. ; 8vo; 32 pages
