Early Days on Bendigo

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Early Days on Bendigo - F. McKenzie Clarke.

Carlton, Victoria: Queensberry Hill Press. First edition, 1979. pp 86.

Very good cream coloured dust jacket with image of gold diggers: No chips, creases or tears to the jacket but there is water staining along the bottom and top of the rear face (1 cm.)
Immaculate sage green cloth boards, quarter bound to spine in lime green buckram - quite attractive. Gold titles to spine.
Paste down owner details.

Interesting unread text full of footnotes. No tanning.
There is a fold out vintage style map (50 x 50 cms) showing the pioneering terrain. The top right corner of the text block is damp stained to 10 cms in to all edges, but mercifully the wet did not penetrate too far into the block and all that remains is a little warping and some discolouration in places.

Indexed. The print run was limited to fifteen hundred.

Most of the second-hand items you see online have been donated, by supporters like you, to our high street stores. Each item is then priced, photographed and listed on this site by our amazing team of volunteers from across the country.

After you have bought your item, our team of volunteers package and dispatch it from the Shop straight to you or your chosen recipient.

All profits from the sales of our goods go towards funding Oxfam's work around the world. We rely on your donations to sell online so please keep the cycle of goodness going!

Oxfam Bookshop Market Harborough

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller. Oxfam bookshops offer a wider selection of books than most shops, from modern fiction and leisure interest to more specialist subjects, classics, and rare or collectable books. We also stock an attractive range of greetings cards and a good selection of stationery. Come and browse!

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
