25cm x 16.5 cm landscape, 36pp. Coloured pictorial front paper cover in very good condition with no prior owner’s marks, Overall in very good condition with unrusted hinge staples slightly out of alignment thereby stressing the rear page that has a 1cm tear on the bottom edge . Minor age tanning present on all pages as expected. A 10 cent printed notation is on the front cover with interesting advertising on the rear cover too. Classic dated cartooning from Pix Magazine with now racially inappropriate stereotypical images of Australian aboriginals somewhat symbolic of white Australian racial prejudices still very prevalent in the 1950’s and 60’s. Humorous nevertheless to the average non indigenous Australian at the trime, this edition is scarce for collectors of Jolliffe’s cartooning.
