Descripción Libraries Board of South Australia, Adelaide SA, 1964. Facsimile reproduction: quarto; hardcover, with gilt spine-titling; 408pp., with a large folding engraved plate and five aquatint plates - one coloured - three folding charts and two folding tables. Retailer's bookplate on front pastedown; offsetting to the endpapers; boards mildly scuffed with some softening to the head and tail of the spine; lower corners lightly bumped; text block edges lightly spotted and dusted along the top edge. Lacks dustwrapper. Good to very good. Postage quoted is for a standard format octavo book. Final charges may vary depending on size and weight. Oxley's journal of this piece of inland exploration is probably one of the finest examples of an explorer's journal to come from the settlement of Australia. The original print run in 1820 consisted of only 500 copies which explains, not only the relative scarcity of original copies, but also the South Australian Libraries Board's decision to produce this facsimile reproduction from their holdings in 1964. This is a fine and faithful reproduction of this rarity. Nº de ref. del artículo: 72808

Descripción London: John Murray, 1820. Hardcover. Condición: Fine. 1st Edition. London: John Murray, 1820. First Edition. Quarto - 27.8cm., [xv], (1 - Errata), 408pp. including Appendix, Index. with three folding engraved and publisher’s linen backed maps or charts, two folding tables, a folding engraved plate and five aquatints, two with original hand-colouring; a most attractive copy bound in modern gilt ruled polished 3/4 calf and linen boards, spine with full gilt-decoration and marbled end leaves, top page edges gilt. Some light intermittent foxing as usual, otherwise a Fine and most desirable copy. Scarce. A very important Australian book, being the only inland exploration work published in quarto, and reputedly only 500 copies produced. John Oxley held a significant place in the early history of the Colony contributing to the exploration of the New England districts of New South Wales, as well as the discovery of the Brisbane River. Oxley’s first journey was made beyond the Blue Mountains, up and around the Lachlan River. Vast swamps compelled him to return when less than two days’ journey from the Murrumbidgee River. In his second journey, made the following year, Oxley led a party down the Marquarie River. He found the land very swampy, the party took a detour and discovered the Castlereagh River. The party then struck N.E. and East across the Warrumbungle Ranges and the Liverpool Plains, crossed the Dividing Range and reached the coast at Port Macquarie. The finely-drawn maps and aquatints include views drawn by Major James Taylor from sketches by Evans, second in command and the deputy surveyor, and the striking portrait "A Native Chief of Bathurst", prepared after a drawing by John Lewin, and one of very few known Aboriginal subjects by Australia's first professional artist. WITH: Loosely inserted are 2 original hand-written letters fully signed “J. Oxley” to his wife Emma, written at Sydney Town to Kirkham, Oxley’s farm at the Cowpastures, dated 26 February (1824). The second letter is not dated but of a similar period. The letters are interesting and refer to W. Marsden and Mr. Cordeaux (Governor Macquarie’s land commissioner). Oxley had married Emma Norton in 1821 at St. Phillip’s Church, but died in 1828 aged only 42. Signed by Author(s). Nº de ref. del artículo: DRGp 16.5

Descripción John Murray, London, 1820. Quarto, with three folding charts, two folding tables, a folding engraved plate and five aquatints, two with original hand-colouring, in later half red-brown morocco, gilt, all edges gilt, by Morrell. First edition of John Oxley's narrative of his two major expeditions, the first detailed description of the Australian interior and the earliest book devoted to Australian inland exploration. This is a very attractive copy of the most handsome of all Australian exploration journals, a finely produced quarto volume whose appearance recalls the earlier quartos of the First Fleet chroniclers and was clearly designed to rank on the shelf with the books by his illustrious predecessors like Phillip, Hunter, Tench, Collins, White, Grant and Flinders. It "is undoubtedly the chief book-making achievement of the Macquarie period?" (People, Print and Paper).Following the discovery of the Lachlan River by Evans in 1815, Macquarie appointed Oxley to lead an expedition to determine the course of the river and investigate its potential. Evans was appointed as second-in-command and Allan Cunningham was appointed as botanist. Setting out from Bathurst in April 1817 Oxley named the Macquarie River, explored the Lachlan and travelled about twelve hundred miles. But his findings on this first expedition were of some disappointment and Oxley recorded in his journal 'I was forced to come to the conclusion, that the interior of this vast country is a marsh and uninhabitable?'.A second expedition, to determine the course of the Macquarie River, was mounted in 1818 again with Evans as second-in-command to Oxley. After being bogged down in marshy country, Oxley split the expedition into two parties: he persevered into the Macquarie Marshes, whilst Evans travelled to the north-east and discovered the Castlereagh River. After regrouping Oxley and Evans headed eastwards, discovering the Liverpool Plains, the Peel River, and the New England tableland, before reaching the coast, discovering the Hastings River and Port Macquarie. He recorded his relief: '?on gaining the summit? we beheld the ocean at our feet. Every difficulty vanished, and, in imagination, we were already home?'.Although their prime objective had not been met, the expedition had seen some exceedingly important discoveries including lush grazing pastures and a fine harbour. As a result, in 1819 Oxley sailed to Port Macquarie on board the Lady Nelson, together with King and Roe on the Mermaid, where Roe in particular was instrumental in charting the harbour and examining the head of the River Hastings. The appendices in the present volume include comments relating to this latter voyage, notably a letter from Oxley to Governor Macquarie dated 12 June 1819.The finely-drawn maps and aquatints include views drawn by Major James Taylor from sketches by Evans, and the striking portrait "A Native Chief of Bathurst", prepared after a drawing by John Lewin, and one of very few known Aboriginal subjects by Australia's first professional artist. In fine condition, in a good Morrell binding. Nº de ref. del artículo: 4504414
