Description:

[Angry Penguins #1] KERR, D.B. and Max HARRIS (editors): Angry Penguins ('as drunks, the angry penguins of the night ...').

Adelaide, Adelaide University Arts Association, [1940]. Octavo, 54, [1] pages. Overlapping wrappers very lightly marked at the rear; a fine copy.

Notes:

Inscribed and signed on the half-title 'With best wishes, Max Harris'. The first issue of this famous literary journal, taking off where 'Phoenix' crashed and burned. The introductory note says it all: 'Last year "Phoenix" went, and thus was happily consummated a failure to understand which had started with the first number. Had the members of the Union Committee struck with conviction or even cynicism they might have been pardoned, but without scruples they promoted their apathy to the rank of fervour, and to this there was no immediate answer. Again the calm sincerity of the University's indifference readily absorbed the shock. The production of this magazine will appear then an act of defiance, and indeed it is, but defiance is a dish to be eaten cold; whether good or bad the magazine itself is infinitely more important than the disturbances which lie behind it'.
