GOLDFIELDS AND MINERALS OF VICTORIA
GOLDFIELDS AND MINERALS OF VICTORIA Details:

Queensberry Hill Press 1980. As Blainey states in his introduction, when this book first appeared in 1869 it became something of a court of appeal for arguments about the geology, history and working methods of the early Victorian goldfields. 'Brough Smyth had such a strong sense of history and such a premonition of the speed with which precious new evidence would vanish that his compilations were touched by imagination and insight'. This is the 1980 reprint, in pristine condition. The shadow on the cover is of myself taking the pic.
