About This Item

Sydney: Angus and Robertson, 1916. First Edition. Rare first edition. 'Today these booklets are generally regarded as children's items, but in their day they were issued in individual envelopes and were intended to be used as enlarged greeting cards... their contribution to the Australian pictorial propaganda of the First World War was pervasive and amusing and remains perhaps the only such work to survive with a timeless appeal.' (Holden, p 92). String tied octavo in original wrappers with colour pictorial onlay, 56 pages, colour frontispiece and plates, the front cover shows some wear at the edges, a couple of small tears to yap wrapper edges, light crease mark to tipped pictorial onlay, a near fine copy of the rare first edition.
