Front colour cover illustration of Uncle Oojah standing outside the Cinema Box Office with Jerry, Snooker and Binky. Contains a variety of short stories and cartoons, illustrated profusely with two colour wood cuts throughout. 100 pages. The Oojah stories started as a supplement to the Daily Sketch in the early 1920's and were developed into seperate publications, including the Annuals, which were published until the 1950's. This annual is undated, but I would say that it is from the late 1940's. Uncle Oojah is, of course the elephant from Oojah Land, and this volume also contains stories with his friend the black cat Snooker and other characters such as Jerry and Fuzzy Fox. Specific condition: Binding: Rubbing to corners, otherwise very good. Interior: The 'colour this picture' page has been partially completed in pale watercolours, otherwise very good. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
