Bush Friends in Tasmania : native flowers, fruits and insects, drawn from nature, with prose descriptions and illustrations in verse. Last Series.
Macmillan, London 1891 - #95 of 700 copies, signed by the author/artist. Folio. vi, [ii], 76pp, [8]pp (contents, last blank), 12 numbered full-page colour plates (Plate I is the illustrated title), 3 other coloured plates (dedication page and two titles for poems), all with tissue guards; 8 poem-title pages printed in monochrome on the text paper, all text pages with decorative border. Original gilt- and blind-decorated cloth over bevelled boards, extremities a little rubbed but bright and clean, all edges gilt. The book has been expertly repaired: the usual problem of perished gutta-percha binding meant that several pages/plates were loose in the binding, but none were adversely affected, with the gilt edges in very good condition. The front hinge has been strengthened with Japanese tissue. Offsetting on the limitation page (the first leaf), a little occasional light marginal spotting, the plates clean and bright. Very good. ***Ferguson 12516. *** Please use [Ask Bookseller a Question] option below to confirm availability and get accurate postage quote for this item (the amount quoted is for an 'average' hard-cover book of up to 1kg in weight).
