Cloth stains, edgewear, light cock, light tone, otherwise light wear. Solid hardcover. ; Geoffrey D Smith; American Fiction 1901-1925: A Bibliography; B-974. "By no means as prolific as other prose-writers, Raymond Bridgman published one the movement's only novels, Loyal Traitors. The story is somewhat of a non-fiction account of the movement that indirectly caricatures personalities of famous anti-imperialists like Francis Ellingwood Abbot, Moorfield Storey and David Fagen. The heroine, Faith Fessenden has the potential of being the image of feminine liberty. She is sensitive, kind, and just. The story turns on three Bostonians going to the Philippines to fight alongside Aguinaldo's rebels." - Michael Cullinane; Liberty and American Anti-Imperialism, 1898-1909. Quite uncommon progressive movement novel supporting the armed Philippine independence movement against American annexation. ; 310 pages.
