Souvenir of the Inauguration of the Australian Commonwealth.

Sydney: N.S.W. Bookstall Co, printed by John Sands, 1901. Presumed first and only edition. 40pp. Large format stapled production in colour pictorial paper covers. 17x11ins / 43x27.5cms. With celebratory verse, an article on the Australian Union, Queen Victoria's Royal Assent, and statistics of New South Wales. With many captioned photographs, plus a number of advertisements. Firm, bright, and clean. The tips of the bottom corners of the pages have been bent, now flattened. The front cover has a one-inch chip from the bottom corner, and two closed tears to the margin have been repaired. The back cover - advertisements in colour - is a little rubbed. There are other very minor scuffs or signs of handling to the edges. The staples are in very good condition, just slightly rusted at the centre fold. A very nice copy.
