A standard two-volume reference work for many years, this edition "is about a third longer than the Lists of 1932 and 1936, and is the first to contain a wealth of illustrations, arranged in chronological and systematic order, thus giving the volumes an encyclopaedic character." (dj) The first volume contains the text, plus the first 500 illustrations, while the second contains the rest of the illustrations, for a total of 1478, as well as indexes. A useful resource indeed.
