Where else, I say where else will you find such an item???
Apparently Australia had a P.R. campaign going back in the 1930's. This is a Minature 'pocket' guide - scarcely 4' tall- was put out by the Australian National Travel Association. This book entitled 'Talking Points on Australia' is chock full of facts...both 'Interesting' and mundane! According to the book, it '...Epitomizes outstanding fundamental facts concerning the Fifth continent...'
over 500 species of Acacia trees, over 300 species of eucalyptus, xx bushels of wheat production in 1936...amazing animals...blah blah blah...I somehow have this vision of being stuck in a room with an Aussie, being battered with facts...HELP!
I'll send this anywhere on the planet for listed shipping cost!
