London: McBride, Nast & Company, Ltd., 1916. First edition. A sequel to the pseudonymous author’s previous work, “Rome and Germany, and the Plot for the Downfall of Britain” (1909), which endeavors to “show that the real authors and instigators of The Great War have been Rome and Rome’s Army of Jesuits, who, for the last fifty years, have completely dominated and directed the policy of the Vatican” (from the Preface). Some OCLC records erroneously list “Watchman” as Conservative MP, Vyvyan Adams, who authored a few books under the same pseudonym, but who would have been far too young to have written either of these titles.
8vo., red cloth stamped in gilt, 291,  p. Cloth is soiled and worn with fraying along the lower front joint, rear hinge cracked, cheap paper browning; a couple marginal notations. A Good, serviceable copy. Uncommon in the trade with no other copies currently available (Mar., 2020); and although not scarce institutionally, less than two dozen copies located in OCLC. Item #07277
