Notes

Bears the bookplate of the Hamilton Mechanics' Institute and Free Library, accessioned 52 aa (Skeyhill 187)

Library's Skeyhill copy inscribed: "Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania U.S.A. 11/3/21 The Versailles peace-treaty is the most criminal and heinous treaty that has ever issued from the council-halls of civilisation nations. The war ended 3½ years ago and it is now possible to look through the hysteria of the moment and see events in their true perspectives. And looking back, we who travel, and see, and think deeply, realise that the politicians have squandered on the green table of peace, the fruits of the great victory (over) we so dearly won on the red fields of war ... To me the big thing is to save and advance civilisation ... Tom Skeyhill."(Skeyhill 187)

Subjects Paris Peace Conference, (1919-1920)
