        Part of the Harbour of Port Jackson, and the Country between Sydney and the Blue Mountains, New South Wales

      London: Alecto Editions and the State Library of New South Wales, 1988. Originally engraved by Robert Havell and son, printed by Edward Egerton- Williams in colours and finished by hand, with printer's blindstamp. 24 1/2 x 31 inches. "By 1820, Sydney was a town of 12,000 inhabitants, about a third of whom were convicts. It had grown dramatically during the administration of Lachlan Macquarie who was appointed governor of New South Wales in 1810. Unlike previous governors, Macquarie was not content merely to oversee a penal colony. His vigorous building programme changed forever the appearance of Sydney, while his policy of accepting emancipated convicts as respected citizens demonstrated a social attitude strangely out of step with the times. Both these policies earned him criticism. In 1819, alarmed by Macquarie's extravagant public works, the British Government commissioned a lawyer and civil servant, J.T.Bigge, to investigate. The attacks by his critics were met head on by Macquarrie's supporters in New South Wales. Books, pamphlets and paintings luded the governor's undoubted achievements. Almost certainly Major Taylor's drawings were used in, if not commissioned for, this cause. The engraved view presents a flattering image of the Australian seat of government and, by extension, of Macquarie's term there...Taylor arranged the engraving and printing of the of the three sheet Panorama.. upon his return to England in July 1822...Havell appears to have worked from [Taylor's].. large watercolours, but amended them with additional details.. and decorative elements...It is most fortuitous that the copper plates...have survived. There is no other example of such a case for 19th century Australian engravings."

Along the way, he encountered superb scenery and a fascinating and varied cast of characters - Greek dragomen, Turkish pashas, illiterate frontier guards and obstreperous innkeepers; he spent his nights in khans, tussling for space with donkeys, goats and cats, and his days strolling out with sketchbook in hand, dodging packs of hostile dogs (and sometimes the equally hostile local population) in his determination to record the grandeur of the countryside."; other than a light corner-crease to rear cover a perfect copy; 222 pages. .

L'opera è costituita da due volumi, le ristampe di due rarissime opere del Settecento legate a Carlo III: "La Reggia in Trionfo per l'accalamazione e coronazione della Sacra Real Maestà di Carlo infante di Spagna, re di Sicilia, Napoli e Gerusalemme.descritta da Don Pietro La Placa e stampata nella Regia Stamperia d'Antonino Epiro, nel 1736" e "Funerali per Carlo III re delle Spagne e per l'infante di Napoli D. Gennaro Borbone scritti da D. Giovanni Evangelista Di Blasi e Gambacorta stampati a Palermo presso la Stamperia Reale nel 1789". Entrambi i volumi contengono le tavole di varie dimensioni, con le incisioni di cui sono arricchite le opere originali. Le incisioni sono state realizzate dagli incisori Giovanni Gramignani Gramignani, Francesco Cichè, Antonio Bova, Giuseppe Vasi e Bernardino Di Giovanni. Le immagini incise ed i testi dei due storici La Placa e Di Blasi, hanno un grande valore documentario perchè rappresentano la Palermo del Settecento e mostrano la grandiosità e lo sfarzo barocco con cui si celebrarono i due avvenimenti legati al re Carlo III. brossura illustrata in cofanetto 31 x 22, I voll. 241 pp. + 22 tav. in b/n ft, II voll. 120 pp. + 5 tav. in b/n ft
