Oblong 4to, non-paginated. Hardcover in chocolate brown cloth with cream title on front board and white title on a very firm spine, with a small white scratch on lower edge of front board and a similarly tiny spot of soiling on rear board with minor shelf edge-wear to be overall in very good condition with an undamaged d/w in near-fine condition now protected in clear archival covering, text and sepia photography from the 1870’s onwards on high quality glossy paper remain in pristine condition devoid of any extraneous markings, thereby putting this book in the excellence category overall. As expected , a fascinating book of full page old photos with annotation on the opposing page that arguably suffers from the absence of current photography of the same view. The first edition of this book in 1984 was published to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the state of Victoria. This second edition celebrates Melbourne’s 150th anniversary and Melbourne City Marketing came into existence in 1991 to provide a collective voice to all the different components that make up Melbourne.
