London: London Co-Operative Society Ltd., 1944. ii,12p., v, softbound magazine in 9.5x7 inch pictorial wraps, staple-fastened. Slightly worn, a bit faded and dust-soiled, staple rusty. Quite sound and handleable, clean and unmarked within, a good to very good copy.

FYI, a question about the cover image; are the fellows pictured cooperating or fighting? Comment no.1: a banner headline on p.1 succinctly explains that "World peace and security can never be achieved without world consumer-co-operation." Comment no.2: on p.8 we find that the emblematic flag of the society is "The Rainbow Flag", see article headed "The Rainbow flag [not shown] flies over Tong Hall," Tong being a small English village near Huddersfield, a large market town in Yorkshire). Perhaps related to this congeries of passenger pigeon factoids is that Jan (aka James) Morris published a history of the World Bank called The Road to Huddersfield (2012) which sure sounds connected.
