Welcome to our monthly list for October 2018, with nearly 200 items.
Among the highlights are a late 19th century photograph album containing views of the interior of Paraguay, dating to just before the founding of the New Australia colony; an important hand coloured copper engraving by Grasset de Saint-Sauveur (Paris, 1798) illustrating the discoveries of Cook and La Perouse; an obscure ephemeral Arthur Rackham item, The Wendy Calendar (1911); a leaf from the Coverdale Bible – the first Bible printed in English (1535); plus a wide selection of books on Australian and international artists, 18th century bindings, Australian children’s books, sheet music, and ephemera.
