Rare books, maps, prints & photographsPublished on 20 Nov. 2018
Our forthcoming auction is one of the most varied we have offered. As usual, there is a strong showing of Australian and Pacific voyages and travels, including Flinders, Voyage to Terra Australis, 1814, with the large atlas; Phillip, Voyage to Botany Bay, 1789, in the coloured issue; two sets of the official accounts of Cook’s three voyages, 1773-84; and a singular copy of White, Voyage to New South Wales, 1790, with the
plates present both in coloured and plain state and with an unrecorded proof plate.
The maps are headed by the three very rare Flinders charts of 1801, for which his Observations on the coast of Van Diemen’s Land published in the same year, is a commentary ‘intended to accompany’ them.
The photographs include a magnificent pair of albums of views in New South Wales, circa 1880 to 1895, one containing 100 large photographs, the other 11 folding panoramas of Sydney. A number of other panoramic views, of various kinds, have also been consigned.
The natural history section derives chiefly from the collection of Dr. Louis Pigott of Brisbane, and includes, amongst some fine bird books, John Gould’s copy of Buller, History of the birds of New Zealand, 1873.
The highlight of the prints is the very rare view of Newcastle published by Absalom West, Sydney 1812.
We are also pleased to offer a group of finely illustrated architecture books, spanning four centuries.
We will also be accepting bids through Invaluable.

Online Auction #3: Literature, Australiana, Antiquarian books, TravelPublished on 30 Oct. 2018

Indeed, work is well under way on three separate specialist auctions – Military History, Gastronomy, and History of Medicine – scheduled for the first few months of the new year. All three are based around single-vendor collections.
The present auction is a mixed-vendor sale, and with many of the 455 lots we have instructions to put very few impediments between you and temptation! Broad subjects include Australiana, exploration and travel, literature, antiquarian books, natural history, and erotica.
