The Blue and Brown Diamond. A History of the 27th Battalion, Australian Imperial Force, 1915-1919
Adelaide, Lonnen and Cope, 1921.
Octavo, 228 pages with 12 illustrations and 16 maps plus 18 plates and the printed front endpaper.
Colour-pictorial cloth a little worn at the extremities and along the rear hinge (now with minimal restoration to the spine); rear board cracked down the centre, but still firm; acidic paper brittle and discoloured as ever, with trifling chips and short edge tears to a number of leaves (and a tear to one leaf neatly closed); overall a decent copy of a book notoriously difficult to find in good condition because of the poor quality of the materials used in its production.
Dornbusch 310; Fielding and O'Neill, page 227; Trigellis-Smith 226.
