Stories of Old Australia

Selected by Bill Wannan

Currey O’Neil, 1985, [First Edition], ISBN 0859022021, illustrated chapter starts, hardcover, dustjacket

Very Good Condition, a little edge and shelf wear, a little rubbing and bumping to edges and corners, no inscriptions; dustjacket shows minor edge and shelf wear minor rubbing and bumping to edges and corners, sunned spine (see photographs)

“The colourful days of convicts, gold rushes, paddlesteamers and stagecoaches are vividly evoked in this feast of stories and verses.  The vast distances and loneliness, the mateship and the characters that made Australia unique are conjured up by such vintage writers and poets as Henry Lawson, Dowell O’Reilly, E. J. Brady, ‘Prince Warung’, Edward S. Sorenson, A. B. Paterson, W. E. Harney and many more.
Originally published as four separate volumes, this omnibus edition is divided into four parts: Legend Makers, Out West, Riverboat Days and The Lights of Cobb & Co.  Each contributes to the overall picture of an almost vanished Australia.”
