Adelaide, Sands and McDougall, fourth edition [circa 1919].
Oblong octavo, [ii], 34 pages with illustrations plus text printed inside both covers (with a small 1919 calendar mounted inside the front one, and a postage rate slip inside the rear).
Cord-bound flush-cut colour pictorial card covers; light tidemark to (only the blank portion of) the bottom margin throughout; an excellent copy.
Inscribed and signed to E.J. Bowen by the author ('Mrs Wordsworth James, Febry 27th 1919'). A genuine oddity - a personal anthology in praise of the humble coo-ee, the 'Call of my Country' - featuring verse, art, crafts, limericks and yarns. Military and Aboriginal themes are well-represented; not least is the one-page account of several visits the author paid to Mr Gillen (of Spencer and Gillen fame), then near the end of his life, 'all helpless and paralysed as he was'.
