Fully titled Memories: A Survey Of Early Australian Furniture In The Collection Of The Lord McAlpine Of West Green

The most astonishing collection of Australian furniture ever amassed has brokered an analysis of early Australian home life by Graham Cornall that is both comprehensive and innovative.

Due to the extensive variety “from the bizarre contrivance of backblocks’ battlers to the superb cedar masterpieces that graced the parlours, boudoirs and salons of the colonies’ finest homes”, Cornall found the traditional furniture classifications unhelpful and seeks, in this work, to forge some new paths.

Also includes references to and descriptions of Australian timbers plus maps.

Published by Australian City Properties, this volume has over 600 full-colour plates and is in excellent condition (and is still housed in the postal box in which it was originally dispatched).
