New Year’s greetings, and welcome to our first retail catalogue for 2019. It is an interesting miscellany representative of just some of our many interests – in this case these include art, autographs, literature, photographs, travel and exploration. Recent acquisitions include rare Lawrence of Arabia ephemera, Somerset de Chair’s The First Crusade (Golden Cockerel Press, one of 100 copies), and Idriess’s The Cattle King (1936, a fine first edition with the dustwrapper).
Photographs include the first one taken of Robert O’Hara Burke’s burial tree, a framed pair of images of the Smith brothers’ Vickers Vimy in Adelaide in March 1920, a very unusual group portrait of Oswald Mosley and his first wife’s family, and fine portraits of Don Bradman and George Fife Angas.
