Description

GARRAN, Andrew. Illustrated under the Supervision of Frederic B. Schell, Picturesque Atlas of Australasia Three Volumes. Sydney: Picturesque Atlas Publishing Company, 1886. Folio size rebound in half leather and cloth covered boards. The new binding by Peter Marsh of the Queensbury Hill Press and hence very presentable. With over 800 engravings on wood and some colour maps. A very good set although as usual lacking the railway maps which were loosely inserted and are rarely present. Garran, although not a scarce book, is one of the most appealing books published in nineteenth century Australia. It is large and impressive and contains lots of wonderful engravings. It is always a pleasure to handle one of these books which were originally sold door to door in the major cities of the day. They were sold in 42 parts or in book form. There are many variations in the binding.

Condition

A very good set although as usual lacking the railway maps which were loosely inserted and are rarely present.
