LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
State Library of Victoria, Melbourne - reprint ed, 1992. large format softcover, 11 1/2" x 11 1/2. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps & stickers. Barcode excised from ffep. Corners slightly curled. Book in VERY GOOD condition. Full colour cover, lemon endpapers, 41 full-colour plates by S T Gill, and Select Bibliography. In the corner of the wild scenes surrounding the amazing gold discoveries in Australia in the early 1850s, sat an inconspicuous 34-year-old bankrupt artist, sketching quietly with pencil, pad and an amused gleam in his eye. Fortunately the State Library of Victoria later commissioned him to translate his series of sketches into glowing watercolours, which appear in their entirety in this book for the first time. His masterly series brings to life one of the most colourful periods in Australia's history; here supported with carefully-researched historical support by Michael Cannon.
