Notes:

+ RUSSELL, Mrs Henry Edward: Joyce Martindale. London, Remington and Company, 1894. Octavo (195 x 135 mm), [iv], 324 (last blank), [8] (publisher's catalogue, uncut and unopened) pages. Light blue cloth lettered in gilt on the front cover and spine; covers a little worn and bumped at the extremities; cloth a little rubbed and marked, slightly damp-affected near the foot of both front and rear covers, and a little abraded near the title on the front cover; inner hinges neatly reinforced; a decent copy. New South Wales-born Mrs Henry Edward Russell (Frances Emily Russell, nee Robey, 1849-1899) was the mother of the artist Una Stella Haslingden Russell (1871-1955), the second wife of Sir John William Downer (1843-1915), one of the Fathers of Federation. His name-plate (J.W. Downer) is mounted on the pastedown of the second book. The Bibliography of Australian Literature (Volume 4) records only these two novels and a slim volume of verse ('The Federation of Australia', 1898) under her name (and erroneously gives the date of publication of the second novel as 1893). Trove records very few institutional copies of these novels (with neither of them in the National Library of Australia). [2 items].
