Scarce First Edition 1933 WW1 Australian War Artists 33 Bound Prints, Original Box. BO 309 - Bo 309
This is a superb copy of a scarce 1933 first edition published by the Board of Management to the Australian War Memorial and was edited by J.L.Teloar, the director of the A.W.M. at Canberra. The book contains 52 plates in colour and duo-tone of official war artist paintings and covers all aspects of W.W.1 on both land, sea and air. Each coloured plate has a corresponding text opposite which gives details of the scene depicted by the artist. This is a first edition on the original buckram cloth binding with the Australian coat of arms in gilt embossed to the front cover. The book is an oblong folio in very tight and undamaged condition due no doubt to being contained in its scarce original box. Most copies are damaged or have had plates removed. This copy is in a nice complete condition and is rare to find in its original box with its original protective paper dust sleeve. This is a superb record of the Australians at war by many famous artists of the time. Price includes UK delivery. BO 309

1st Edition Handbook For The Ordnance, Q.F. 25 Pr, Mark II On Carriage, 25 Pr. Mark I Land Service 1940. BO 308 - BO 308
This is an official publication by H.M.S.O. for the Standard British Field Gun and Howitzer of WW2 and beyond. It was introduced into service just before the war started combining high angle and direct fire, relatively high rates of fire and a reasonably lethal shell in a highly mobile piece. It remained the British Army's primary field piece well into the 1960's. This copy of the handbook is a 1st edition of 1940 and has a multitude of ammendments dated 1941 and 1942. As it was an official publication and not for general release to the press or the public, copies are scarce and highly sought after. This is a clean, tight copy of a rare book. The price includes UK delivery. BO 308
