The Roll of Honour - ANON.

Standard Art Book Company, 0, Hardback ..
Condition: Good. Leather is worn and faded, somewhat frayed at head of spine. Bruised at tips. Top edges of text block dusty. Internally bright and clean.

Red boards with ˝ red leather. Marbled endpapers. A biographical record of members of his Majesty's Naval and Military forces who have fallen in the war. Volume V with 776 portraits. 'Here are their names, officers and men together, as they fought and died for this dear Empire which they have loved so exceeding well. Let us pay tribute to their memory.' The lists encompass A-Z so I assume that this volume reflects one year of the Great War. Somewhat unusually there are thicker paper pages inserted at pp64 and pp128 which I assume as per original binders intent. 174pp. Size: 4to Demy (11" x 8˝")
