Description:

[Angry Penguins #6] HARRIS, Max and John REED (editors): Angry Penguins. 1944 Autumn Number to commemorate the Australian Poet Ern Malley [cover title].

Melbourne, Reed and Harris, 1944. Quarto, [ii], 108 pages with 20 illustrations (8 portraits and 11 Aboriginal artefacts, all from photographs, and a full-page Cedric Flower illustration) plus the wrappers illustrated in colour by Sidney Nolan. Colour pictorial wrappers lightly marked; essentially an uncirculated copy, and probably as fine as they come.

Notes:

The famous/infamous Ern Malley issue, of which 900 copies were printed. The first 36 pages are devoted to his 'The Darkening Elliptic', with a lengthy introduction and two verse contributions at the end by Max Harris. The striking colour artwork on the front wrapper is the first magazine or book cover by Sidney Nolan.
