For The Term of His Natural Life, deluxe illustrated edition by Marcus Clarke
Indeed this is a deluxe book. Cloth bound unwell-pooh brown inside the jacket. Solidly bound with colour and line drawings throughout.
Very early novel of Van Diemen's Land, though I'm not quite sure where Clarke wrote it and where it was first published - or when, around Quintus Servington by Henry Savery, the first Australian novel, which was produced in Van Diemen's Land. BOOM! I love that fact.
I would suggest that if you're in Hobart, avoid postage at all costs - it has a certain heft.... LOCALPICKUP magics the postage away.
