George Canning. A Contemporary Tribute to Him, from a Manuscript now in the Queensland University Library and Archives [cover title]

Tall octavo, [12] pages including the title-cover.

Card covers (with the title in red on the front panel) unevenly sunned; minor crease to two corners throughout; an excellent copy, uncut and unopened.

The lengthy colophon on the verso of the rear cover states that the item 'was wholly set by hand by Harrison Bryan & Brian Donaghey and printed with the assistance of the English Honours students in the University of Queensland'.
