Melbourne: Lothian Publishing Company, 1916.
With an essay by James MacDonald and some remarks on Australian art by the artist.
Frederick McCubbin (1855-1917) was an Australian artist and an outstanding member of the Heidelberg School of Australian impressionism. A student of Eugen von Guerard, McCubbin's paintings remain iconic images of pioneer life in the wilderness. They were keystones in building a mythology relating the Australian landscape to national identity.
Edition of 1000 copies, fully signed by McCubbin. Quarto, forty-five illustrations in colour and black and white (some are tipped plates with printed tissue guards); original gilt decorated cloth, a little rubbed, some preliminary foxing but still a lovely clean copy.
Price (AUD): $850.00 other currencies
