Descripción

1920 [revised edition]/ 1917 (printed at the foot of the spine). Quarto, 252, 96, [144], [155]-158 pages with 'over 1,000 Double-tone Illustrations' plus 30 tipped-in plates (20 are single-page; 7 [including a map] are double-page, and there are 3 large folding panoramas, including the frontispiece). Gilt-decorated purple cloth, all edges gilt; cloth lightly rubbed and flecked; a few tears and splits to the folding frontispiece and one other folding plate are sealed with clear tape (now a little discoloured); an excellent copy of a book rarely found in such a pleasing state. Mounted within the decorative border printed on the recto of the stiff card to which the frontispiece is attached, is a four-page ACMF card with a gelatin silver portrait photograph (125 x 80 mm) of Private Edgar G. Acres, 5th Pioneers, laid down inside, facing a printed account of his (and his brother's) war service (possibly supplied by the publisher). Edgar Acres saw action in France and Belgium, and 'made the supreme sacrifice at Villers Bretonneux, May 9, 1918'. This 'edition is necessarily confined to the volunteers from New South Wales and South Australia. Originally framed with special reference to the Gallipoli Campaign, the later deeds of Australia's splendid army in France, Belgium, and in Palestine have been recorded in the present edition' brought down to November 1918 (Editor's Preface, page 10). Part II of the book, 'Australia's Fighting Families' contains service details of many thousands of men. The first portion, 'Some of Australia's Fighting Families', runs to 96 pages and appears to contain biographical details of only NSW servicemen. The rest contains 'Australia's Fighting Families. South Australia' in separately paginated 16-page sections lettered from A to I (144 pages in all). Eight of the single-page tipped-in plates are series of group portraits. Pages 17-201 are devoted to Gallipoli. Please use the 'Ask Bookseller a Question' link below to confirm availability and postage charges. N° de ref. de la librería 98228
