[Ipswich, UK: W.S. Cowell Ltd., 1956].
Stapled booklet in wrappers (23.5 x 16.5 cm.),  pages. Designed for Guinness by SH Benson Ltd.; illustrations by Antony Groves-Raines. FIRST EDITION. A marvelous printed promotional item for the Guinness Co., with fanciful designs – one for each month of the year – printed in color throughout. These booklets were sent annually to doctors from 1933-1939, then 1950-1966, after which the Christmas Guinness Book of Records continued the tradition. Every publication from 1933 to 1966 was a high-quality booklet with rhymes, text and cartoons created by some of the top illustrators and writers of the time. Some light rubbing to edges of wrapper, otherwise near fine.
