Member's Price $58.50

George French Angas (1822-1886) spent 18 months sketching and observing in Australia and New Zealand between 1844 and 1845. The young Angas excelled at capturing the minute detail of plants and people, objects and landscapes, and rapidly assembled a portfolio of 250 fine watercolours.
In this fully illustrated volume, Philip Jones has used Angas' sketches, watercolours, lithographs and journal accounts to retrace his Antipodean journeys in vivid detail.
