Online Catalogue #1

Highlights of the current list range from an appealing copy of the first Australian children's book, A Mother's Offering to Her Children (Sydney, 1841), to Donald Friend's outrageous masterpiece, Bumbooziana. Other Australian art books include Lionel Lindsay's A Book of Woodcuts (Sydney, 1922, one of only 200 copies), and review copies, in fine condition, of some of the standard monographs of the same period (Ashton, Heysen, Hilder, Martens, Nicholas, Streeton, and Young). A number of deluxe editions from a printer's archive, in uncirculated condition, include The Bradman Albums, Iredale's volumes on birds of New Guinea, and Nicholls' Orchids of Australia (1951). Ephemera include attractive 1930s trade catalogues of sporting goods, camping equipment and outdoor furniture, and the auctioneer's fully marked-up copy of a very rare stud sheep sale catalogue (Sydney, 1891).
