Call of the Camps

Preface to First Edition

call of the camps

This Illustrated Booklet gives glimpses of New Zealand's camps, and in-cludes a brief description of the Dominion's part in the war.

The fixing of the retail price at sixpence for the first edition during a time when publication costs have the inevitable war increase required some pages of advertisements (a respectable array). The first plan provided for illustrated pages of the principal towns. Wellington and Nelson were the only acceptors of the terms offered, and therefore arrangements had to be made for other pages.

One section (representative women's mes-sages) is not complete. In several cases, various circumstances made for delay with replies or caused a regretful preference for silence.

Block-process post-cards of pictures in the booklet are available.

Enquiries regarding "Call of the Camps" should be addressed to L. S. Fanning, Box 582, Wellington.
