We are at it again! We have so many books coming in we have to have more auctions.
On the highlights reel this auction are delightfully graphic tourist posters advertising Tasmania in the 1930s-50s(689-692); Picturesque New Britain a photographic and anthropological documentation of cultural events and everyday tasks of the island off Papua New Guinea(217); A copy of Ulysses 1922 limited edition from the Egoist Press which is the second printing of the book and the first to have an English imprint(9); a book signed by Gough Whitlam Bob Hawke(100).
We also have Australian history, Australian literature signed firsts, good old pharmacy books, Aboriginal paintings and much much more…..
We also have two copies of The Red Book by Carl Jung who had a great influence on the creative process. This is the first time the Red Book has been published. It was written after Jung spent time with Sigmund Freud. The deluxe copy is folio size and bound in leather and house in a felted box. There are two sections of this work, a good colour facsimile of the manuscript with decorative initials, borders and colourful mandalas.’
