  • Entertainment in Burnie (Tasmania) c1900 – Original photograph by Ernest Warde

    Entertainment in Burnie (Tasmania) c1900 – Original photograph by Ernest Warde

    An original posed photograph (19.5 x 15 cm) with a hint of patriotism and Gilbert and Sullivan by Ernest Warde of Waratah, Tasmania. With studios apparently at Burnie and operating around 1900. The original board mount damaged and the photographic image a bit creased from the top centre but still a nice example from a hard to get photographer more famous for his image of the thylacine bounty

    Nice image of Burnie theatricals c1900

  • The Cruise of the Kawa – Wanderings in the South Seas – Walter Traprock – First Edition 1921 – Nicely Signed and Inscribed

    The Cruise of the Kawa – Wanderings in the South Seas – Walter Traprock – First Edition 1921 – Nicely Signed and Inscribed

    A First Edition 1921 in New York by Putnam’s.

    George Chappell wrote under the pseudonym Walter Traprock. This is a hilarious parody of the romanticism of the South Seas. Traprock discovers the Filbert Islands. Ridiculous photographs feature various volunteers including Putnam himself all posing as “en jungle” in a New York studio. Regraded as a work of genius and hailed by Howgego the guru of fanciful adventure writing. This one nicely signed by the author.

    Other books by Traprock (Cgappell) include .. How to Explore and What; Crazy With Tahiti; Around Russia on Roller Skates and Curry-Dishes for Moderate Incomes … we like him

    Do not use this to find the Filbert Islands

  • Author’s Letter and Book –  C.A. Wendell – Author of “Out of the Fog”

    Author’s Letter and Book – C.A. Wendell – Author of “Out of the Fog”

    An unusual letter and again a nice turn of phrase to his Doctor following a “refund check”

    “Here is a copy of my latest book: “Out of the Fog”. It’s pure fiction, but fiction with a purpose. You may not have time or the inclination for fiction, but the story contains a few pages which may interest you – and your wife too maybe – in case you care to find them” etc etc

    Amusing letter and advice and we found the pages … a Voyager secret!
