What makes this copy interesting is that it has on the front free end page a hand lettered and coloured presentation plate "SRECIAL PRIZE presented to Miss Rhoda Bowley in memory of my son Reginald killed in action in France December 31, 1916" and then signed " J. E. Lindsay" "Methodist Sunday School Creswick December 1918". Reginald Lindsay was the brother of Norman. The spelling error is odd, as is the reversal of the letter Z in the word prize. There are no initials or other indication of who was responsible for decorating the bookplate. "In 1915 he returned to Creswick where he comforted his mother after the death of his father, and farewelled his younger brother Reg, who had just enlisted in the AIF. Reginald Lindsay was killed in France on 31 December 1916. It is no accident that the figure of the heroic ANZAC, so prominent in Norman Lindsay's war posters, bears a marked resemblance to photographs of Reg.
