The Great Adventure of 1914-1918

[Melbourne, Gordon and Gotch, circa 1919].

Oblong tall octavo, 36 pages (including the wrappers) with a vignette illustration, 28 pages of plates (some from photographs, with all but two full-page) and 2 maps on the last page. The wrappers comprise a pictorial title, an index, a chronological table, and the colophon.

Modern cloth, retaining the original wrappers; entire pamphlet creased down the middle, with a short sealed split to the head of the front wrapper along the crease; minimal signs of use and age; a very good copy with the small name-stamp (and private library number) of Ian Pettman on the front flyleaf.

Primarily a picture book; there is one introductory page of text, and a two-page prose piece, 'The March Past' at the rear. Trove correctly attributes authorship of this work to Roy Bridges. Not in Dornbusch; not in Fielding and O'Neill.
