Illustrated with cartoons, pp160, good clean copy in a price-clipped dustwrapper which is slightly worn and faded. [An entertaining and detailed selection. Deliciously malicious! WhereThere's a Will is an absorbing collection of odd and curious wills from many countries and many times. The vindictive wills, revealing wills, wills written on nurses petticoats, eggshells, tractor fenders and wills found in a bottle at sea included in the book reflect the full range of man's virtues and vices. The colorful individuals whose Last Will and Testament grace the pages of this book give more than their money away - they give themselves away. They use their wills to get back at obnoxious relatives, to maintain control beyond the grave, to reward, to punish, to defy those who say you can't take it with you. And to have the last word. Among the famous and the infamous whose wills are featured are: George Bernard Shaw, W.C. Fields, Patrick Henry, Janis Joplin, Napoleon, Jack Kelly, Howard Hughes, William Shakespeare, Ian Fleming, Billy Rose, Picasso, Marilyn Monroe, Aristotle Onassis. . . and many more.]

Another Journal, Pett (Norman)
18 Pett (Norman) Another Journal
London A Rylee Ltd Paperback Fair Norman Pett 
{Not dated - perhaps 1944/1945 ?}. Illustrated with photographs drawings and cartoons, small slim 8vo, pp (64), slightly worn internally, paperback, covers a bit marked, worn and a little creased, lacking a small part of the coloured surface on the upper cover, the inner sides of the covers a little blotched. As always, there is a rectangle cut from the upper part of the title page. [After taking a correspondence course in drawing from Percy Bradshaw's Press Art School in London, Pett began to contribute cartoons to Punch, Passing Show and other publications, including children's comics. He also taught art at Moseley Road Junior Art School in Birmingham. Pett is the creator of the famous Second World War comic heroine, Jane. Jane was "born" in 1932, when 'Jane's Journal, the Diary of a Bright Young Thing' was launched in the Daily Mirror. As war broke out, Jane (who was modeled after Pett's wife), shed more and more clothes, thus keeping up the morale of servicemen both at home and abroad. Eventually he started to use professional models, the most famous of which was Chrystabel Leighton-Porter who modeled for him during World War Two, and who I believe is shown in this publication.]
