Michael(ed.), C. D. - The Children's Friend Annual 1918: Containing the Monthly Parts for 1917. S. W. Partridge & Co. Contains the complete serial 'Under Wolfe's Flag; or, The Fight for the Canadas by Rowland Walker; plus Short Storeis, Special Features, Pictures and Photos, Poetry and General material. 9½" x 6¾", 188pp plus 3 plates, quarter red cloth, paper covered boards (front colour illustrated: skaters), hardback. Advertising endpapers. Illustrated in monochrome throughout plus 3 coloured plates (1 by Harry Neilson); it appears that all the plates are present but the number seems to vary with edition and it is possible that 1 may be missing although I don't know from where as the frontispiece is a monochrome drawing; the plates are not listed in the contents.
Case detached at front and nearly detached at back; spine sunned; bubbles to front-board illustration; edge-wear; may (although I don't think so but stand to be corrected) lack 1 plate; page-edge browning; overall good only (no colouring, scribbling, inscriptions, not ex-library) but no more than expected; (no wrapper). One of the coloured plates is an archetypal school-girl hockey match, a must for all Girl School story collectors.
