These are a number of scans of a book published by Pyrsos in 1937 in Athens, about the Greek youth. It was written by I. G. Iliakis (whose signature appears on the first inner page) and commissioned by the 4th of August regime leaded by Ioannis Metaxas. It has 114 pages, size 13×19 cm and as you will probably notice, the statue holds a spear featuring on its top a pelekys, a double axe. The double axe is the symbol of the Greek fascist youth organization EON and one of the main symbols of the Metaxas regime.
