After WWI, there was intense interest in creating war memorials using bronze, because of its durability and beauty. This catalog highlights the organizations using bronze, the process of casting bronze, the design department, the artists at work, and features many examples of bronze markers that had been created for clients. There are also some examples of lighting, gates, and other architectural features that use bronze. Attractive and scarce; we have not had a copy of this catalog before.
