LEGENDS OF THE RHINE (copy owned by WWI US infrantryman likely in Battle of Soissons)

Koln am Rhein: Verlag von Hoursch & Behstedt, 1906. 8th edition. Hardcover. 8th edition, preface dated 1906. Small 8vo, cover pictorial and titles stamped in gold, black and orange, 248 pp, in English, illustrated with b&w plates from various artists. Ownership name and place on ffe: Captain John S. Cromelin 12th Field Artillery United States Army Schloss Ahmmemfels Rhein 1918 -1919. Indeed, US news reports of July 30, 1918 list John S. Cromelin of Hackensack NJ as among the seriously wounded in the Battle of Soissons that commenced on July 18, 1918. We can infer from the inscription that Capt. Cromelin stayed on in some capacity in Germany during the occupation that commenced when the Battle concluded in the German defeat in December 1918. Likely a souvenir from Cromelin's recuperation from his war wounds and recovery before returning stateside. Now a fascinating artifact of service to country. Very Good. Item #012443
