Descripción Ure Smith Pty. Ltd., Sydney NSW, 1962. Quarto; hardcover, with gilt spine and upper-board titles and decorated endpapers; 104pp., with many monochrome engravings. Minor wear; toned and spotted text block edges. Mild wear to dustwrapper edges; some small scrapes at the corners and tiny tear to the top of the upper flap turn; now professionally protected by superior non-adhesive polypropylene film. Very good to near fine. Postage quoted is for a standard format octavo book. Final charges may vary depending on size and weight. This work was originally issued to subscribers in 20 parts, each containing (usually) 2 engraved plates. A facsimile reprint was issued in 1878, in all ways identical, apart from an acknowledgement of the facsimile status on the upper panel of the wrapper. A third reprint was executed in 1882, notable for its green cloth boards. Ure Smith presented a facsimile edition in 1962, which was followed-up by this reprint edition in 1966. The work details the growth and development of Sydney's buildings and provides a snapshot of the city's centre in the year 1848. Copper-plate engravings of the notable buildings are presented, along with elevations of the major street frontages, incidentally identifying the locations of many early businesses, providing a fascinating window into the city at this time. Copies of the original collected subscription pamphlets are extremely rare. Nº de ref. del artículo: 77746
