LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
The Beagle Press, Roseville, Sydney - ISBN:0947349324, not dated. hardcover, 7¾" x 10¾", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, etc. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. With 58 plates (many in full colour), and 35 b&w photographs. Although Purves Smith's productive career was little more than six years (interrupted by World War Two), his art showed a great leap in sensibility and subject. This book is the story of his life, it is a family saga of father and son, of an Anglophile way of life pursued by some of Melbourne's established families, and the nostalgia that was born from it. It is a love story played out in Melbourne, Paris and London.
