Secondhand. Very good condition. Minor wear to book corners. Interior is excellent. Dust jacket has some fading of spine and minor creasing at top and tail.
One of the most comprehensive and fascinating 19th Century publications on the Australian colonies. It has been taken from the original four-volume Cassell's Picturesque Australasia edited by E E Morris. The original also included New Zealand, New Guinea and Fiji.
This facsimile volume includes all the pages from Cassell's Picturesque Australasia that related to Australia as we know it today. It is in a slightly larger format than the original publications.
