The Christmas Pageant Book [cover title]

[Adelaide, John Martin & Co., 1946].

A shape book (overall dimensions approximately 312 × 142 mm), [24] pages of colour illustrations with a little explanatory text.

Colour-pictorial card covers, with the entire booklet die-cut in the shape of Father Christmas; covers very slightly marked and creased; two pinholes through the entire booklet; paper uniformly tanned; essentially a fine copy of a most ephemeral item.

An early souvenir booklet for 'Johnnies' Annual Street Parade', still held each November, albeit no longer under the auspices of the now-defunct department store. 'Information, Annual Christmas Pageant, November 2nd'; the date '1946' appears on one of the floats illustrated on page [6]. Not in Muir; Trove records one copy only (in the State Library of South Australia).
