Wilfrid Blunt wrote of Ferdinand Bauer and his brother Francis ‘one thing is certain: the last 200 years can show no artist of the calibre of either of these brilliant brothers’. This volume contains a fine selection of full-size, colour facsimiles of drawings made by Ferdinand after he set off with Matthew Flinders on the first circumnavigation of Australia in 1801. These plates were never reproduced in book format until the Basilisk Press did so. Indeed the selection comprised herein will never be reproduced again. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
