New South Wales, 1908 [cover title]. An album of 72 original large-format vintage gelatin silver photographs
Sydney, W.A. Gullick, Government Printer, 1908.
Large oblong quarto, colour pictorial title leaf (verso blank) plus 72 flush-cut full-page photographs (each 350 x 275 mm) mounted back-to back to form 36 gilt-edged leaves with the images bleeding off all edges.
Original full calf gilt (later rebacked and recornered in calf) a little worn; in very good condition (the contents are in excellent order).
The broad coverage of the State comprises captioned images of public buildings (12) and street scenes (8) of Sydney; ports and harbours (6, including 3 of Newcastle); north coast farms (8); mines and other industries (10); timber (7); livestock (8); agriculture (6); and leisure (7). Although the album was issued in 1908, it contains a number of images from much earlier negatives.
