NotesThe cover was reproduced in the Daily Express on 2 December 1969 with the following text:
'Genius? Yes, indeed! This term which has unfortunately been sadly devalued by its careless and unwarranted use on too many occasions, can unhesitatingly be applied to Giles.' This is just one sentence from the foreword by Richard Attenborough to the Giles cartoon annual, a 128-page Daily Express publication which will be out this week. The Giles annual costs only 5s, but the demand has increased so much over the years that this year's print figure is a record. Left is a reproduction of the the four-colour cover of the annual. Between those covers is the record of a laughter-making ability of one year's work by the world's greatest cartoonist. Look out for the cover on your bookstall. Order a copy from your newsagent or bookseller today."
