Brain Waves from the Firing Line - and behind it! For South African Soldiers - and others [cover title]

Cape Town, Central News Agency ('By Arrangement with the Editor of "The Nongqai", the South African Services Journal, Pretoria'), September 1917.

Large quarto, 32 pages with 30 full-page cartoons by Austin plus advertisements on three surfaces of the covers.

Two-colour pictorial wrappers a little marked and chipped, with trifling loss; a few short tears to the front cover, and one to the leading edge of the first two leaves, expertly sealed; marginal stains to four gutters where Leucadendron argenteum (silver tree) leaves have been preserved; overall a presentable copy.

First World War humour, not a patch on Bairnsfather, but decidedly less common.
