The World and His Wife, A Monthly Magazine for the Home

[December 1906]

Publisher unknown

Christmas edition of this 146 page magazine features stories, recipes, advice columns, social scandals and advertisements across 73 Leaves and a two staple spine. It also holds a 2 leaf / 8 page Christmas Present advertising supplement.

"The World and His Wife" is an English saying which means lots of people in a particular place at a particular time. For example, It's going to be a wonderful party, the World and His Wife will be there.

It appears from preliminary research that this magazine is the only surviving copy in Australia and possibly the world.
