The Jubilee History of Tasmania : with which is incorporated the Early History of Victoria, Biographical Sketches, & "Australian Representative Men". Copious papers by James Fenton.
Melbourne: Wells and Leavitt. [1888]. Two volumes. 4to. Each volume in four parts: [iv], 56, 94, 32, 69, 84, [84] & [iv], 50, 40, 156, [224]pp, many plates & illustrations. Original blue cloth over bevelled boards, gilt and black-stamped rules and title lettering on upper boards, lettered in gilt on spines, blind rules on lower boards; the corners a little rubbed but the covers are bright and clean. The gilt title on the spine of the first volume has been double-struck slightly off-centre, giving it a mildly out-of-focus look. The endpapers have been replaced; because of glue-staining from a previous covering rather than any fault with the binding, which is firm (this covering, though unfortunate in its effect on the endpapers, is responsible for the nice condition of the cloth). All edges gilt. The first few leaves in each volume have a little light spotting, otherwise nice and clean inside. A very good set. ***Effectively a Tasmanian edition of Leavitt's Jubilee History of Victoria and Melbourne - the Tasmanian content (by James Fenton) comprises about a third of the work. .
