Views of the Gold Regions of Australia
Angus, the son of George Fife Angas, one of the founders of South Australia. He studied anatomical drawings and lithography in London after first having been placed in business, which he disliked. He visited Malta and Sicily in 1841, and published his first book of travels in 1842. He went to Australia in 1843 and later spent about a year in South Africa.
Six views of the Goldfields of Ophir including 5 hand-colored lithograph plates, plus title.
This work was evidently copies from the book published in Sydney in the same year. The fact that the name of the artist has been mistakenly given as Angus suggests that this London version was published without Angas's knowledge. There is no plate corresponding to Plate 5 of the Sydney edition.
Folio (17" x 13 1/2"), pp. 1 & 2 description of plates
