North Ryde, NSW, Australia Angus & Robertson 1986 0207149615 / 9780207149610 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Fine 
First printing. Burnt orange cloth with gold titling on spine and on cover with decorative blocking. Mustard endpapers. 406 pages. Profuse color and black & white illustrations. Index of Authors and Titles. ~ Book is clean, straight, with light rubbing along bottom edges and head of spine. Front endpapers beginning to tear at lower part of the hinge, but this is a superficial flaw and the binding is intact and strong. (Please see bookseller photo.) Interior pages are clean and unmarked. Dust jacket is crisp and bright with no wear. Now in a clear archival cover. ~~ An exemplary collection of classic fiction and nonfiction pieces from a wide range of Australian writers, representing a distillation of those which helped shape/reflect the image of Australia. Included are Watkin Tench, May Gibbs, C.E.W. Bean, Patrick White, Joan Lindsay, and A.B. Facey, to name a few. The compilation includes stories, biographies, humor, histories and children's works, and the pieces are accompanied by critical essays and biographies of the writers as well as their picture. The book also features a selection of paintings, photographs and drawings by eminent Australian artists, such as Frederick McCubbin, Russell Drysdale, and Norman Lindsay. This is a lovely book and a fine introduction to Australia's body of art and writing. Please note that this is an oversized and heavy book and may require an extra shipping charge, particularly for international orders.
