This fairly common souvenir booklet printed and published by Hudson & Kearns, Ltd., has a coloured picture pasted on the front of a French lass pinning a rosette on to John Bull’s lapel, (see front of Journal) needs more than a cursory glance. There are at least three types of this souvenir known, having 44pp, 40pp and 32pp not including the covers. Apart from the front of the covers which are the same , the backs and inside of the covers are different for the three editions. In listing the contents page numbers have been allocated, although the pages are not in fact numbered. I have also used the terms first, second and third to differenciate between the three printings, and not to imply that the 44 page book was a ‘first edition’, and the others reprints.
This is not an instance of just a fewer pages in the books, the actual make up and sequence of the pages has been altered in each edition. The 32 page edition actually has pictures that do not appear in either of the larger editions. If any readers have a copy of this booklet, please check up on your pages, and if you have a different one to my three please let me have details of it.
