"This volume is the first comprehensive picture of Australian antiques to be published and includes objects of the useful and decorative arts made in this country from the time of the arrival of the First Fleet at Sydney Cove in 1788 and the beginnings of European settlement until the federation of the Australian colonies into the Commonwealth of Australia in 1901.  Also included are items made elsewhere especially for the colonial market or of strong historical interest.  Sections devoted to furniture, silver, pottery, maritime arts, needlework, emu eggs, metalwork, glass and jewellery are introduced by informed texts written by experts in the respective subjects."
