"Having begun to write verse at school, Nichols became one of the soldier–poets of the First World War; his Invocation (1915) and Ardours and Endurances (1917) were widely read and quoted and established him as one of the more highly acclaimed younger poets of the day. He was regarded as a sort of new Rupert Brooke, and in E. B. Osborn's noted collection The Muse in Arms (1917) he was represented more copiously than any other writer. Like his friends Siegfried Sassoon and Robert Graves, Nichols wrote graphic records of the battlefield, but his poetry was inherently more idealistic." (ODNB)

First edition; 8vo; frontispiece portrait of Nichols in uniform, tissue guard, contemporary owner's name to free endpapers; publisher's brown cloth, printed spine label, a very good copy.
