The Graphic Extras, The First Phase of the Great War

A[ndrew] Hilliard Atteridge

This book contains a mixture of text, printed on thick pulp paper, and nearly 200 photographs and illustrations in line, monochrome or pale colours printed on glossy paper. Many of the illustrations had first appeared in the weekly magazine, The Graphic. Andrew Hilliard Atteridge was an Anglo-Irish journalist and author.

The drawing by Blampied had first appeared in The Bystander on 16th September 1914 (vol 43, issue 563, p 555). Almost all of Blampied's illustrations published during the First World War depicted women and showed the war from a perspective that was different from most artists of the time. This illustration was printed on the last page of the book.
