Printed on one side of a piece of wove paper, folded twice to make a card of 4pp., 4to. In good condition, lightly-aged and spotted. Low's 10 x 8.5 cm illustration is on the cover, and is rather uncharacteristic in its lightness of touch. Nor is the layout of the cover in the usual 'Sette' style, rather harking forwards to the 1940s. Cover states: 'His Oddshippe Sir Harry Trelawney Eve (Chaplain) in ye Chair'. The central pages carry a long humorous description of the proposed entertainments, with contributions by John Hassall, Vyvyan Holland, Rupert Gould, 'and there is grave danger of Brother RALPH STRAUS Scribbler airing one of his perennial grievances'. The back cover carries the menu, beginning with 'Melon Rafraichi' and ending with 'Baisers de Dames'. No other copy traced, either on COPAC or on OCLC WorldCat.
