Alfred Emile Cornebise
College Station, Texas Texas A&M University Press 1991 0890963495 / 9780890963494 First Hardcover Fine Fine Jacket 
Stated First Edition in clean unworn dust jacket. Clean golden brown cloth boards with dark brown lettering on spine. No bumping, fading or wear. Binding is tight and square, pages and edges are clean and bright. Clean light brown endpapers - no names, writing or marks. Amazing images by artists of scenes from World War I which utilized everything from horses to airplanes, barbed wire and trenches, cannons and grenades and gas. Clean dust jacket is unchipped, no wear, no tears. Enclosed in new archival quality removable mylar cover. Presented here is the first comprehensive account of the U.S. Army art program in World War I. The AEF artists saw their role as one of preserving images of the entire aspect of American involvement in a way that photography could not. Unsure of what to do with these official artists, AEF leadership in France issued passes that allowed them relative freedom to move about, sketching as they went and finding supplies and lodgings where they could. Here are some of the amazing results of their work. 028288
