viii, 72 pp, 9 3/4" H. Profusely illustrated with b&w cartoons/drawings. "Long before Billy Bluegum (a koala bear) made his trek to fame in the pages of 'The Magic Pudding', readers of the 'Bulletin' and the 'Lone Hand' delighted in the activities of Lindsay's most popular bear. Through two tumultuous decades, Billy's adventures relfected the social and political turmoil of a country suffering the birth pains of nationhood and soon to be plunged into a world war. Society, marriage and divorce, elections, conscription and war, the races and Christmas - all are dealt with in Lindsay's inimitable style; his wry and witty captions add the final piquant touch. Lindsay's unique understanding and love of Australia's animals are nowhere more apparent than in his enchanting portrayal of Billy and his bush friends. All appear in this selection by Keith Wingrove - which includes both the first and last Billy Bluegum pictures drawn by Norman Lindsay. The drawings are at once a joy to the eye and an inexhaustible source of fun and laughter." Very light edge wear to boards - moderate on bottom edge. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling, light rubbing, tiny stain at bottom edge of front panel.
