The first edition of this scarce work.

A comical calendar for the year 1915, by Barry Pain, in which he lays out a series of predictions for the year to come, though there does not appear to be any reference to the ongoing war.

Twelve pages of adverts to rear.

Collated, complete.

Condition

In the original publisher's paper wraps. Externally, the wraps are edge worn, particularly to the tail of the front wrap and head of the rear wraps, where the edge wear has resulted in chips. Wraps are a little sunned and rubbed, a little heavier to the spine. A few small marks to the wraps. Front hinge is starting but firm. Internally, generally firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean. Prior owner's ink inscription to the half-title.
