De Luxe Publications [cover title]

[Sydney, The Author, 1938].

Octavo, [28] pages with 17 (of 18) illustrations (including, tipped in, a bookplate and a Japanese colour-print, but lacking the Japanese colour-print originally tipped in on the verso of the secondary front cover).

Overlapping printed blue wrappers (stapled over plain wrappers of a lighter blue colour); covers a little bumped and marked; staples rusty; minor signs of use and age; a very good copy.

Inscribed, dated (1939) and signed by Barnett. Basically a catalogue of Barnett's publications, 'Limited de luxe editions designed and published by the author and printed by Harrie P. Mortlock's Beacon Press'. The mounted Japanese prints were 'two of the smaller illustrations from "Japanese Colour-Prints"'. The bookplate, by George Hartley Brown, is for Sir Charles Kingsford Smith (Peake 2974); in our experience, and from our limited enquiries, it appears likely that each copy of the catalogue contains a different bookplate. Presumably the same can be said for the Japanese colour-prints.
