Go, Get 'Em!

Boston: L.C. Page, 1918. First Edition. A very good copy; with the author’s presentation inscription on the front free endpaper, apparently to a fellow W.W. I flyer, “Sept. 12, 1918. For Joe: One of the six originals. A token of ‘niggers luck’ in the air. May it please and help to remind you once in a while of ‘Le Petit Aviateur Americain.’ Billy Wellman.” Thrown out of a suburban Boston high school, the author arranged to join the Lafayette Flying Corps (not The Lafayette Escadrille, which was a particular unit), and eventually went on to a highly successful Hollywood career (Wings, Nothing Sacred, A Star is Born, The Public Enemy, etc.).
