About This Item

Angaston: 'Barossa News' Limited (printed by Hussey and Gillingham, Adelaide), 1911. First Edition. Paperback. Angaston, 'Barossa News' Limited (printed by Hussey and Gillingham, Adelaide), 1911. Quarto, 120 pages, extensively illustrated (including many pictorial advertisements). Slightly trimmed front panel of the two-colour pictorial title-wrappers mounted on binder's cloth over boards, with portion of the rear wrapper (with the pictorial 'Drink Yalumba Ports' advertisement) mounted on the outside rear cover; light vertical tidemark to the leading third of the last ten leaves, with some light related cockling to the rear half (and with very light cockling to the bottom corner throughout); first and last leaves a little blemished (foxed, creased, short sealed tears, with surface loss to a handful of words); overall a very presentable copy. A very rare item of local history: we have handled only two other copies since 1976, and both were in worse condition than this one. The content is far more substantial than its title suggests; there are thirteen pages of well-illustrated text devoted to the fruit and vine industries, for example.
