12 colour plates (including Frontispiece) - collated, with hundreds of other illustrations. Ward Lock published Wonder Books from 1905 right through until the 1960's. There were general picture annuals (such as this one) as well as specialist volumes such as those relating to aircraft. They are generally characterised by the profuse illustrations contained within and the gold rear board. This is a very good example with the binding in very good condition and the front and rear end papers (slightly browned) by Thomas Maybank fully intact. Very good clean interior. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
