Book Description and Condition

Book description and condition

A competition was held in 1925 to choose a design for the Anzac Memorial at Villers-Bretonneux, France. The competition was won by the Australian architect William Lucas, but both Hobbs and the Head of the Imperial War Graves Commission, Sir Fabian Ware, disliked Lucas's design. Edwin Lutyens was approached after economic difficulties had led to the original Memorial project being

halted. The Memorial was finally unveiled on 22 July 1938 by King George VI. Original russet cloth covered boards, gold blocked front and printed spine, without dust jacket. 290 x 230mm., pp. 95, black and white plates and architectural drawings throughout. Contents, slight insect 'nibbled' bottom edge of page 5 (Title page), few light stains, no foxing; boards, mild uneven fading mainly on back board, medium 'bump' top right-hand front corner. SIGNED by WILLIAM LUCAS to LIEUT.-GEN SIR TALBOLT HOBBS, May 1931 (Title page). a unique SIGNED book. VG+.
