Digger Smith by C. J Dennis( )

23 editions published between 1918 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The perfect collector's item - a beautiful facsimile edition of C. J. Dennis's classic tribute to the returned digger, published by Angus & Robertson during World War One as a gift from home to the soldier in the trenches. One of C. J. Dennis's most poignant books of verse, Digger Smith recalls a singing soldier from The Moods of Ginger Mick, who returns from Gallipoli to become the country neighbour of Doreen and the Bloke (The Sentimental Bloke). In true Dennis style it is told with wisdom, humour and pathos. This edition, published to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War One, has been minted from one of eight extremely rare books of verse originally published by Angus & Robertson as little reminders of home for soldiers to slip into a pocket and carry through the fighting. It features original layout, illustrations by Hal Gye, advertising and blurbs, as well as the special 'Trench' dust jacket that wraps around the regular jacket, missing on nearly all of the rare extant original editions"-- Publisher description
