This is an elusive periodic journal/publication. I can find no record of it in the World Catalogue or on the iNet, aside from this unit.

The presumed starting date is October 1913 (1:1) and ran through September 1914 (1:12). It appears that Volume 2 (2:1) started with October, 1914. That would be consistent with 2:6 (March 1915), 2:7 (April 1915) and 2:8 (May 1915), which are the issues in this unit.
