(§3l* NOW PUBLISHED. Observer Christmas Annual A NOVELTY IN HOLIDAY PUBLICATIONS. WHIMSICAL flUCKliflflD A FANCIFUL ROMANCE OF THE HOLIDAY SEASON, The idea of the Annual is both novel and amusing. It consists of a series of racy letterpress sketches of imaginary events in Auckland and on the Goldfields, under extreme labour laws and other absurd conditions. Every page is filled with etchings by 'Bio.' and other astists, and the whole constitutes an amusing but nevertheless valuable portfolio of men of mark in Auckland. The Annual, as its title implies, is whimsical from cover to cover. Profusely illustrated by numerous cartoons and caricatures and character sketches of local celebrities. The illustrations comprise hun- dreds of familiar faces. INTERESTING FEATURES OF OUR ANNUAL : The Goldfields as They Might Be.
