Sketches of New South Wales. I[-XX]
Saturday Magazine, 1836-, London 1837 - 20 parts, in 24 issues, small folio, with woodcut illustrations throughout; bound together in modern half blue morocco. Rare compilation ? the full run of twenty parts. A series of valuable contemporary accounts of New South Wales in the 1830s by William Romaine Govett, one of Sir Thomas Mitchell's assistant-surveyors. Mitchell described Govett as perhaps the ablest delineator in his department and remarkably clever at dealing with unexplored country. In the course of his work he discovered Govett's Leap in the Blue Mountains, named by Mitchell in his honour. On his return to England, Govett submitted his manuscript and illustrations to John Parker who published it over two years in The Saturday Magazine. This rare compilation represents the full run of twenty parts, handsomely bound. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
