Australian Boys' Annual (1914)

The Australian Boys' Annual was the local market edition of The British Boys' Annual, published 1911-1929. Published firstly by Cassell & Co, later by Amalgamated Press.

The year can usually be determined by the number on the title page, lower left, in this case, "14" meaning 1914.

  2. Just discovered your magnificent website -- great work!
    I'm trying to research some photocopied pages I have from this edition of Australian Boys Annual -- the one with the '14' on the title page. You suggest this means the volume dates from 1914. But on page 32, "Your editor" encourages readers to enter a competition, and wants to receive entries "not later than March 15, 1924". Might that be a typo? How confident are you that this edition dates from 1914?
