LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Thomas Nelson, Melbourne - first edition, 1971. hardcover, 10" x 11 1/2", with dust jacket. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket (jacket wrap-around painting by Clifton Pugh). Dark-brown cloth-bound landscape-format boards with brown type to white spine linen, khaki endpapers, colour-plate spread to title page, 20 other colour plates, 90 b&w photographs and drawings, map, index. Eltham Shire's early story parallels many other Australian communities; but the emphasis here is on pioneers, potters, & painters (& mud-brick builders) who gave the district a distinct artistic label. Clifton Pugh, Joy Peck, John Perceval, Neil Douglas, John Olsen, Justus Jorgensenl lived and painted here. This book also covers the histories of smaller Shire centres: Kangaroo Ground, St Andrews, Panton Hill, Kinglake, Lower Plenty, Montmorency, Christmas Hills, Yarra Glen, Hurstbridge, and Research. Packed with carefully-researched history and old photographs; a book of high production values.
