Woolloomooloo: Sungravure Ltd., c 1940s. Wraps. Twenty numbers of the wonderfully illustrated cartoons on "bushies" (white settlers of the outback), now politically incorrect, by Eric Jolliffe (1907 - 2001), the British born painter and cartoonist who emigrated to Perth in 1911.
Jolliffe became acquainted with bushies and indigenous Australians when we worked as a camouflage artist with the R.A.A.F. during W.W.II in the Northern Territory. He was admired by both Aborigines and bushies; Jolliffe used the harsh circumstances of bush life to make his visual jokes and observations. Many of the cartoons need no captions.
The run includes the following numbers: 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 32, 35, 36, and 42.
Oblong 8vo, each issue approximately 47 pp, staplebound. In the original color illustrated wrappers. Five issues chipped and ruffled at spines; Number 2 loose in wrappers, wrappers chipped with some old sticky tape repairs on rear wrapper. Trove 3930921 at 7 libraries. Good condition. Item #25583
