The latest incarnation of The Gallery Next Door is providing the public with a display of Aboriginal History & Art Books.
Including such rarities as an 1840 first edition of Teichelmann (sic) & Schurmann’s Outlines of a Grammar, Vocabulary & Phraseology, Of The Aboriginal Language Of South Australia; The Native Tribes of South Australia and Tindale’s Aboriginal Tribes of Australia, this is an exhibition of unquestionable significance.
There are also a number of general interest books about Art and the Dreamtime, plus some fiction and kids books from Indigenous authors.

POPPING UP IN MELBOURNE!
Next weekend (July 7-9), the country’s most prestigious booksellers will converge on Melbourne for the 45th Rare Book Fair – the culmination of Rare Book Week.
Kate Treloar, of Adelaide’s Pop-Up Bookshop in the Central Market, is proud to be flying the flag for SA. In this debut appearance she will be one of only two South Australian booksellers exhibiting at this internationally recognised event.
Highlights from the Pop-Up Bookshop stall include collectible copies of classic works:
– a signed copy of Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five
– The Complete Works of H.G. Wells (28 volumes with the first volume signed by Wells);
– special editions of Tolkien’s The Lord Of The Rings
– deluxe copies of Don Quixote (Cervantes), The Rime Of The Ancient Mariner (Samuel Taylor Coleridge) and Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
And, for those who still expect a shop full of pop-up books, a collection of particularly rare regimental books (circa 1900) with various pop-ups, pullouts and panoramic artwork!
If you’re in Melbourne, come say “hi” – if not, a message of support would do wonders for our nerves (this is actually a pretty big deal)!
