A catalogue of Australian Prints held at Josef Lebovic Gallery Sydney NSW 1987. "The Josef Lebovic Gallery in Kensington, Sydney, specialises in Australian and international vintage works on paper and photographs dating from the 15th to 20th century".
A comprehensive illustrated overview of Australian print covering the late 19th century to the 1950's, it is as unique as it is rare. An invaluable book for the student of Australian Printmaking and its history.
The foreword by Roger Butler is of great interest not only for the references to John Skinner Prout (who incidentally started Australias first art club in Hobart in 1846) and his opinions on the improvement of Australians (which still hold relevence today for the same reasons) but also as an overview of early print markets in Australia.
