With an original pencil and watercolor drawing of a soldier with a cigarette signed by Arnoux on the front blank. Oblong, 13 by 16.5 cm. Unpaginated, with 12 pochoir plates celebrating various aspects of American military life and the American entry into the First World War. On the facing page of each plate (the verso of the prior plate) is a paragraph relating to the image. These short pieces are anecdotal, allusive, imaginative, literary and/or lyrical. They do not directly explain the image but rather offer an literary counterpart to it. The front cover is heavily foxed, and the foxing continues, gradually lightening, until the fourth leaf or so. After that the leaves are clean until the final blanks, when light foxing resumes. There is also a two inch closed tear on the front cover, repaired on the inside cover with archival tape. From the front this tear is not conspicuous. Original tasseled string tie intact.
