Prime Minister Billy Hughes [Autograph] In “A Voyage With The Mails Between Brisbane & London, Australia & Great Britain. A Memento By An Amateur Photographer”

1921. Hardcover quarto with woodblock print on blue cloth pictorial boards, 66pp, autographed “W.M. Hughes” and dated “2/6/21” by then-Prime Minister Billy Hughes along with other passengers, 30.5 x 25cm. Replaced spine and endpapers, scuffing and slight soiling to boards, some foxing throughout.

Published by The London Stereoscopic Company. Fourth edition, 111 photogravure illustrations including frontispiece, all with tissue guards, plus a laid in image of RMS Orvieto. Prime Minister Billy Hughes, who was one of the passengers aboard the Orvieto, was travelling to London for the Imperial Conference [20 June to 5 August 1921], to determine a unified international policy, particularly regarding the relationship with the United States and Japan. The conference resulted in the Washington Treaty of 1922, which gave some, though not all, of the protections Hughes sought. Ref: ADB; Wiki.
