Notes

National Library of Australia copy has a tipped in Melbourne branch price list for 1940-41, and a loosely inserted circular letter sent to a Melbourne address, signed by the industrialist S. Barton Pope (1905-1983), regarding possible stock shortages due to war production, and his sincere wish "that 1943 will see the sword converted back to the ploughshare, the bomb to the sprinkler, and that goodwill will pervade all spheres."
