The Boundary dispute was settled in favour of the Argentines, after the Arbitration of the British Government. A remarkable piece of book construction, with a breathtaking pioneering feat of the aerial photographer, who at this period would not have used an aeroplane but most likely a balloon to create these 35 magnificent panoramas of the border. No credit is given in this work to that person. Copac records 1 copy in Edinburgh.
