More About this Item

Description: The Man From Snowy River And Other Verses by A B Paterson. Sydney Angus & Robertson 1895 1st Edition. Original cloth. There are some ink marks on the covers as well as some wear. The gilt titling on the spine is mostly readable. As with all books from this publisher and period there is a little foxing and a few spots and stains throughout but it is still a very good copy. The sometimes found tipped in printed note from the publisher announcing that a Volume of Poems by Henry Lawson is in the press is not present. This is a landmark book in Australian culture. Contains perhaps Australia's most famous piece of verse The Man From Snowy River recited by generations of school children and adults alike, as well as Clancy of ther Overflow. Copies of this first edition are very scarce as only 1000 copies were printed in 1895. People Print and Paper (National Library exhibition celebrating the Books of Australia) number 313 "The book with which Angus & Robertson began regular publishing...published in October 1895 and within four months 5000 copies had been sold"
