A personal view of children's funny papers

So this is an oddity - from December 1973 this near-A3 sized 12 page publication was published to tie-in with a Scottish Arts council exhibition. 

There's an 8 page insert of a copy of 'Chips' (#2523, dated January 14th 1939) - wrapped around this is a 4 page 'section' which has the front cover, introductory essay and then 2 pages on a guide to the 26 exhibits in the exhibition. So not a very big exhibition I'm guessing.

The introductory essay is by Patrick Murray (at the time the Director of the Museum of Childhood, Edinburgh).

If you can shed any further light on this exhibition just get in touch, cheers!
