From the introduction: "In this catalogue we offer a representative selection of books and topographical views recording the discovery, foundation, struggles, consolidation, and progress of the Australian people and society. It is a story stretching over two centuries, from 1788, with the first published accounts of European settlement in Australia, up to 1950, when the crossings and re-crossings of the Dead Heart had breached that last frontier.In many cases the copies offered are of substantial importance for their associations or other unique qualities. Most are now very scarce; some are very rare". Contents - Introduction; I. The First Frontier 1788-1823: items 1-40; II The Settled Frontier 1823-1850 : 41-82; III.
