Description:

[Angry Penguins] [HORNADGE, William]: Ern Malley and the 'Angry Penguins'. Being a Review of the Greatest Hoax in Australia's Literary History, and the Subsequent 'Indecency Trial' [cover title].

Lismore, W. Hornadge (but printed in Adelaide by Thornquest Press), [1945]. Octavo, 20 pages with an illustration. Two-colour pictorial title-wrappers (with a spoof diploma for Ern on the outside rear cover); a fine copy.

Notes:

'An invitation extended to Messrs. Harris, McAuley and Stewart some time before publication to make further comment on the hoax has not been accepted.' The ink-stamped date of 11 August 1945 (from experience, we know this to be the mark of the collector Harold Woodlands) inside the front cover confirms the year of publication.
