The crown and sceptre paper was commissioned by the Curwen Press for Heals in 1935 and reused for this pamphlet. The booklet was produced for the benefit of overseas visitors to the Royal Jubilee. 'Welcome to England, the land of your fathers'! Fortunately the printed invitation to obtain more information has not been torn out (as it recommends) and handed to a ticket collector. Scarce.
