John Batman (1801 – 1839) was an Australian entrepreneur who settled in Van Diemen's Land in the 1820s, and later he explored the Port Phillip Bay area on the Australian mainland with a view to establishing a new settlement there (which later became the city of Melbourne). The treaty he negotiated with local Aborigines in 1835 to acquire land was controversial, as he offered tools, blankets and food in exchange for thousands of hectares of land.

Journey Across the Western Interior of Australia: With an Introduction and Additions by Charles H. Eden [Australiana Facsimile Editions].
Warburton, Colonel Peter Egerton; Eden, Charles H.; Bates, H. W. (editor).
Libraries Board of South Australia (LBSA) Adelaide 1968 
  Hardback small octavo, no jacket as issued, very good plus condition, green leatherette cover (gilt lettering spine), large foldout colour map inside rear cover, black & white engravings & frontispiece & vignette title page, minimal foxing edges, minor edgewear. 307 pp. Facsimile edition. Warburton was the first explorer to cross the Australian continent from Alice Springs on the telegraph line, to Roebourne on the west coast (1873 - 1874). He was provided with 17 camels and six months supplies. He sought to arrive at the Swan River colony but was driven north. They endured long periods of extreme heat with little water, and survived only by killing the camels for meat. They were first to conquer the formidable Great Sandy Desert. Warburton was so dehabilitated that an edited volume was prepared on his behalf. A preface summarises some previous expeditions. Eden was author of "My Wife and I in Queensland".

Rocky Section: An Australian Romance.
Partrige, Sydney; [Partridge, Sydney]; Murray, E. H. (illustrator).

  Hardback octavo, very good condition, pictorial tan cloth cover (lightly marked), black & white plates (including frontispiece), new endpapers, pages lightly toned (notably last page), minor edgewear, rubber bookshop stamp title page. 188 pp. An historical romance set in rural Australia. This novel originally appeared as a serial in "Steele Rudd's Magazine". The author's name is also Sydney Partridge in some other novels, and is a pseudonym for Kate Margaret Partridge (1871 - 1953), who wrote novels jointly with another writer. Contains all four plates (rarely found). Review: "This is an Australian love story pure and simple. A young Queenslander falls in love with a fascinating girl from town but is jilted in favour of a titled man with money. He becomes a misogynist of the deepest dye, and buries himself in a veritable wilderness called Rocky Section — miles from anywhere. One day he discovers a girl near his place who has evidently lost her way and fainted from sheer exhaustion. He takes her to his hut and revives her, only to find that she has lost her memory and cannot tell where she comes from. He hates women with a bitter hatred, but is on the horns of a dilemma. What happens? "The way out" is most interesting, but you must read it for yourself.".

Coveny, Christopher.
Thos. (Thomas) H. Fielding / John Sands (Printer) Sydney 1883 
  Hardback large folio (32.0 x 25.2 cm), original light brown cloth (moire-silk-covered) boards (gilt lettering front cover), original half-bound (dark brown morocco leather spine & corners, with gilt outlining), good plus condition, full-page engravings, new plain endpapers, top edge gilt, faint tide marks edges few pages (previous water contact now dry), cloth cover worn (ring stain on front cover), minor foxing (particularly first & last pages), edgewear. Heavy, and extra postage may be requested to destinations outside Australia. 120 pp. (Limited edition of 219 copies, source National Gallery of Australia.) A scarce book of engravings of scenes from Dickens by an Australian artist, and published in Australia. The etchings depict memorable scenes from his early novels, particularly Pickwick Papers. There are two title pages, one engraved and one letterpress, and an introduction. Interleaved between the engravings are a page with a small text box that include quotations from his novels. Plate 7 is presented in two states (one on India paper). Printing of the etchings was supervised by C. M. Buck. Podeschi H1042. Ferguson 9140A. Christopher John Coveny (1846 - 1941) abandoned his law practice briefly for teaching, but then became an engraver. This is his most famous work. His etchings were similar to those of Phiz - so he did two extra plates (title page & plate 7) to prove his originality (as explained in a preliminary note). His career was short-lived, however, as he suffered a nervous breakdown in 1884. SALE PRICE.

The plates, drawn with lithographic crayon, are by a brother of Napier, and are signed 'JMN'. (Estimated date, 1876, Trove catalogue. Ferguson 13058. Scarce. Small bookshop stickers: A. H.

In 1809 he started a paper-pulp factory at Chiswick, near London, and in 1811 founded the Chiswick Press.

In Penumbria
Gatie, Adrian,
Self Published, North Yorkshire, 1987. First Edition
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. Illustrator: The Author. First Edition. 300 g; 56 pages in original softcover binding. The binding is somewhat rubbed on the edges and corners with loss of colour, but internally the book is clean and free of damage. ""Drawn to situations with raggy edges, to the downside of urban life, Adrian Gatie has photographed the streets since the early seventies, looking for 'whatever'. The legendary American photographer Robert Frank has said that Gatie's photographs 'make clear the pain and sadness of living in his part of the world'. Not all of Gatie's work is dark, however. Much of it is rich in irony and humour and whatever it is that he looks for, his photographs often contain an almost theatrical element that prises the image from its real life setting, creating a separateness which invariably allows for communication without text or caption. His many years working in theatre photography have undoubtedly influenced his ways of seeing and of looking. The photographs in his book In Penumbria deal in uncertainty and ambiguity and in them, through tidal sequencing, we can sense a surreal disquiet and a controlled tension, ready to move on". (Martin Davis) In Penumbria was published in 1987. It is now out of print and has become a collectors item. The accompanying exhibition toured throughout the UK in 1987-88 and the opening paragraphs above are taken from the introduction to that exhibition. Then came exhibitions Nexus (89-90), An Adjustment of Expectations (91-93), Beach Bodies (95-96), Separated Dreams (97) and Our Town (98). Much of Adrian Gatie's work of the '80s was done in collaboration with the Documentary Photography Archive and is in their permanent collection.
