The Strand Magazine "Colonial Edition"

Country: Australia

A number of issues of The Strand Magazine have been seen which are identical to the UK issues except that they are dated one month later and have prices on the cover for Australia, New Zealand and/or South Africa. These are believed to be a "Colonial Edition", printed locally and dated to allow for the delay caused by shipping the printing plates.
