NSW Report on Public Lands: complete collection of 30 maps (1883)
[Maps] The complete collection of 30 maps published to accompany the 'Report of Inquiry into the State of the Public Lands and the Operation of the Land Laws instituted 8th January 1883'. Sydney, Government Printer, 1883. All 30 are linen-backed as issued, all but two are printed in colour; 22 are folding; all but a handful are detailed district maps, the others being rainfall, geological or station index maps, and a population growth chart; apart from minimal offsetting and foxing, and trifling signs of use and age, the collection is in excellent condition, still in its original cloth-covered portfolio (stained on the rear panel, with minor signs of wear). Notes: 'To illustrate the condition of the lands, a series of maps representing every district of the Colony is appended, which express much more distinctly than any verbal description can the actual position of the public territory' (from the original report, quoted in Trove). Districts include Murrumbidgee, Warrego, Bligh, Roxburg, Liverpool Plains, Clarence, Gwydir, Wellington, Lachlan, and Monaro. The full report - issued separately - is not present, but the portfolio of maps contains the printed 'Conclusions drawn from the Report on the State of the Public Lands, and from the evidence appended' (foolscap folio, 8 pages, creased where folded and lightly foxed and worn; '8a 81-83' is printed at the foot of the first page, and 'With Messrs. Morris & Ranken's Compliments' is printed in red above the drop-title - Augustus Morris and George Ranken being the authors of the full report). Michael Treloar Antiquarian Booksellers

'The Times' is quoted early on: 'The Anzacs are more popular with a London crowd than they are with the enemy, and their march was a great success. The City of London paid them the unique compliment of granting them permission to march through the City with fixed bayonets'. Not in Dornbusch; not in Fielding and O'Neill.
