10 ASHMEAD-BARTLETT, E. (introductory narrative by). All-Australia Memorial (New South Wales edition) : a historical record of the national effort during the Great War. Australia's Roll of Honour : history, heroes and helpers.
Melbourne British-Australian Publishing Service 1919 
With over 1,000 double-tone illustrations from original photographs, drawings, maps, portraits, etc. Fully indexed. Foreword by Senator the Hon. George Foster Pearce, Minister of State for Defence. 4to. 252pp, 144pp, 1c-16c, 1d-16d (last publisher's device only).

Large folding frontis, 9 other folding illustrations (one is a map, two are large) and 20 single-page tipped-in illustrations; all these are tipped to heavy card leaves not counted in the pagination. The single-page illus are mounted within a printed border; two of these card leaves have a border on the verso also but there are no plates missing. A 4pp section of coloured paper between pp8&9 has a Dedication poem (to the Immortal Anzacs), a tipped-in image of the Governor General - but lacks another, of King George V, although this does not appear to have ever been present (and there is a small scuff near foot of this page and the one facing where there has been some adhesion) - and an image of the NSW Governor printed on the page. The recto of the first leaf (of heavy card) - which carries the large folding frontis on its verso - has a 4pp card (145x118mm) mounted within a decorative border; the Australian military forces badge is on the front, inside is a mounted (real) photograph (125x75mm) with the soldier's printed service record mounted on the facing page. The soldier is Pte D. Clark, 35th Battalion, a carpenter of Stockton NSW, who enlisted in February 1916, was wounded and gassed at Messines in June 1917, invalided to Britain and returned home in November 1918 and discharged. The frontis and two other large folding illustrations have all been repaired with clear archival tape; one is very minor, the other a little more, the frontis quite a bit. Original purple cloth over bevelled boards, the spine faded, the extremities rubbed with corners a little frayed. All edges gilt. The half-title is a little silverfished along its fore and head edges. The signature where the two folding plates are placed is slightly proud of the block but the sewing only slightly strained. Very clean inside. A good+ copy. ***The date 1917 is printed on the spine, but 1919 appears on the title-page. Part I: Exploits of the Anzacs & Part II: Australia's Fighting Families. The first section covers the entire war, although great prominence is given to the Gallipoli campaign. The second section consists of the service records of NSW men, and photographs of many of them. A publishers note reads: 'With over 300,000 men enlisted in the AIF it is clearly impossible to include a Record of Service of every man in a single volume...' but encourages more biographical details and photos to be sent in for inclusion of future compilations. The listing are alphabetical to a point; that is, after an initial alphabetical list, other names follow, in another alphabetical sequence and the pattern is repeated, but out-of-order names are not uncommon.
