Sydney: Hanson & Bennett, 1867. Hardcover. Apparently a scarce Sydney publication made more desirable for the WA market by the inclusion of a view of King Georges Sound. "The work originally appeared in chapters in the weekly edition of the Empire."
8vo; [vi], xvi (each of the 5 parts separately numbered), 661pp; frontispiece "View of the Settlement on Sydney Cove," with additional lithographed title page. Original brown/mauve blind-stamped cloth boards, title on spine. Covers badly affected by damp, detached but present. Unbelievably, text unaffected with the only internal evidence of damp is tide marks on the early plates. Good -. Item #26763
