NY: Dodd, Mead & Company, . Illustrated With Photographs. First Edition. With a rare signed presentation from one of the French Resistance Fighters mentioned in the book on the front endpaper. In French but a rough translation is "To my little sister [illegible name], remembering the bad hours of the war spent together. Bacher [another illegible name, possibly her married name?]. `Baddah'. page 13.". Possibly to Bacher's own sister? Desoline Bacher (aka “Buddah”) has her involvement in the French Resistance cited on page 13, which she has highlighted by an ink line down the margin. She had also marked her listing in the Index, while someone, presumably her, has also made a spelling correction on page 125. [See scans]. Bacher worked as a secretary at the French Embassy from 1951 until her retirement in 1983. A native of Corsica, she received citations for her efforts in the French Resistance. She died in 1996. 8vo., yellow cloth in dust jacket; 133 pages. Item #56895
