Fragments from France Number Four
The fourth volume of Fragments from France appeared in bookstalls in the last week of August 1917, and the advertisements for it were full of incredible statistics revealing just how popular the series had been: “Already nearly two million copies of the Fragments have been sold. These must have been read, at a low estimate, by fifty million people....printing machines have been printing Fragments, without ever stopping, for the last eighteen months. Of each volume 60,000 copies have gone to the Dominions, Colonies and America.”
Fragments from France Number Four completed a set, and “a binding case to take all four volumes” could be obtained from the Publisher, priced at two shillings and fourpence, post free.
