Robbery Under Arms: A Story of Life and Adventure in the Bush and in the Goldfields of Australia
3 volumes, 8vo
original pictorial green cloth, enclosed in cloth box
VAULT 823 B818r 1888
The most important novel of Australia published in the 19th century. The author's name is misspelt "Bolderwood" on both title and binding. When considering rarities among Victorian three-deckers this book must be included. The Duchess of Cleveland's copy with her bookplate; also her name on title of each volume. The front endpaper of Volume II is cracked; otherwise a superb copy.
