New book, 256 pages. From 1895, "Hobbies Weekly" brought much-needed practical advice and inspiration to bespectacled boys in V-neck pullovers, young ladies in sensible shoes and their pipe-smoking parents (of both sexes) throughout the Empire. The Ammonite Press is proud to reintroduce these solid values at a time when society couldn't be in greater need of guidance. This book, which is full of humorous extracts and anecdotes, is bound to appeal to any young person in need of a phenakistoscope (an old-fashioned zoetrope), those women whose home is without a boot-cleaning stool and all men who wish to benefit from the advice given in a 1950s series of articles entitled: 'Please The Wife'.
