John William Parker 185 x 280 mmD1 / M261 / I187Very good condition. Disbound from a bound copy.

The Saturday Magazine was issued by the Committee of General Literature and Education, who were supported by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge. At this this time the expansion of the British empire was speeding up and people at home in England were very interested in finding out what was happening around the world.

This edition of the magazine is spread over 8 pages. Two of which are dedicated to describing the beauty of the Blue Mountains in NSW. There are also two pictures one of which represents the view from "Govatt's Leap".

The magazine's first page framed would provide a beautiful and interesting edition to any collection focusing on early Australian history and exploration.
