More About this Item


Description:

[Angry Penguins] HARRIS, Max, James McGUIRE and Sidney NOLAN (editors): Angry Penguins Broadsheet. Number 3 [and] Number 7.

Melbourne, Printed by the National Press [for Reed and Harris], [March] 1946 and July 1946. Quarto, two issues, each one containing 16 pages with illustrations. Drop-title pictorial wrappers a little marked and with slight loss to silverfish; in very good condition.

Notes:

Ten issues of this supplement to 'Angry Penguins' appeared monthly between January and December 1946 (with the exception of October and November). All issues are scarce. + Ern Malley's Journal. Volume 1, Number 4, November 1954 (wrappers slightly chipped and creased; only six numbers were issued). + Phoenix 1938 (a fine copy). This journal was the precursor to 'Angry Penguins'; it was published annually by the Adelaide University Union from 1935 to 1939, then intermittently from 1946 to the early 1950s. We would not be surprised to learn that this copy was in the possession of Max Harris at some stage. The following is written in pencil on the first page, in a hand not unlike his: 'We hardly know whether to rejoice or [indecipherable, but you get the drift!] that "Phoenix" is only published once a year'. [4 items].
