Walkabout... Volume 1, Number 1, November 1934 to Volume 17, Number 6, June 1951 [an unbroken run]

Melbourne, Australian National Publicity Association, 1934 to 1951.

Large quarto, all 200 issues (retaining the original pictorial wrappers), bound in 17 volumes (the first issue, and Volume 10, Number 11, November 1944 are present, but not bound in; the second issue is bound in at the end of the last volume in this run).

Red binder's cloth lettered in gilt on the spine (pedestrian but serviceable); both the bindings and contents have a few minor signs of use and age, but overall, an unbroken run of the most interesting years of this important journal.

The cover title of the magazine changed eight times over this period. It was 'Walkabout. Australia and the South Seas' from November 1934 to December 1935; 'Walkabout Geographic Magazine. Australia and the South Seas' from January 1936 to February 1937; 'Walkabout Geographic Magazine' from March 1937 to October 1938; 'Walkabout. Australia and the South Seas' again from November 1938 to November 1939; simply 'Walkabout' from December 1939 to July 1940; 'Walkabout. Australia's Geographic Magazine' from August 1940 to July 1946; 'Walkabout. Journal of the Australian Geographical Society' from August 1946 to April 1947; and 'Walkabout. Australian Geographical Magazine' from May 1947 to June 1951. Contributors include many household names: Ion Idriess, Frank Clune, Mary Durack, Ernestine Hill, Percy Tarlton Rayment, Donald F. Thomson, Eleanor Dark, H.A. Lindsay, Charles Mountford, Arthur Upfield, Charles Chauvel ... There is much Indigenous and North Australian content, and the photographic illustrations are of significance. [17 items].
