  • Tourmaline – Randolph Stow – First Edition 1963

    Tourmaline – Randolph Stow – First Edition 1963

    A first edition of this Australian classic published by Macdonald, London in 1963.

    Octavo, 224 pages. A very good copy in a slightly chipped dust jacket. Ownership signature on paste down. A few pages near the beginning exhibit a some show through of text from the other side … a little irritating … overcome with a relaxing cup of tea.

    A derelict Australian gold rush town is the setting for Randolph Stow’s gripping drama.

    The half title informs … “On the surface Tourmaline is the story of an illusion, of a lost township snatching at the chance of rebirth. At a deeper level it is a fable and man’s ever-present temptation to seek refuge from the world of his own reality”

    And …who can go past the haunting Sydney Nolan dust jacket?

Small octavo, original thick paper wraps, 62 pages, staple bound, with 37 poems of various lengths. Poetry of a good standard, easy on the mind often reflecting on the Australian bush ….

    Signed by the poet on the title. Pretty good condition albeit the spine is tired, internally bright and make allowances for a very rare item.

    A Voyager favourite rare Australian poetry.

  • An Anzac Muster [Tales of Gallipoli] – William Baylebridge – Collected Works Vol II

    An Anzac Muster [Tales of Gallipoli] – William Baylebridge – Collected Works Vol II

    This is Volume II of the Collected Works of William Baylebridge (Memorial Edition) published in 1962. The Memorial publications were released at different times hence they are often found in separate volumes. This volume stands alone.

    The Anzac Muster was first printed privately in an edition of only 100 copies. It is regarded as an outstanding contribution to Australian literature. This publicly available volume represents the very next printing and contains the authors revisions which were made in 1932. These revisions never made the printing press and Baylebridge died in 1942.

    Published by Angus and Robertson, octavo, 226, with colour portrait frontispiece and a facsimile of the authors hand written amendments at the rear. A very good copy in a like dust jacket a trifle marked.

    Tales from Gallipoli from by Baylebridge – revised and revisited.
