Exhibition - Melbourne 1880. - Report of the Executive Commissioner on the Melbourne International Exhibition 1880-81.

Sydney, Govt Printer 1881. Largish octavo publisher's morocco; six autotype photo plates and two folding plans. Some foxing, mostly at each end. A handsome copy with John Chapman's bookplate. ¶ An uncommon record from Melbourne's natural enemy but the NSW Commissioner is gracious, given that Sydney had held the first international exhibition the year before. Only in passing does he remark that it's a pity Melbourne is so flat they couldn't find an elevated spot to park their building. He doesn't mention that Melbourne is a follow up to Sydney more than three or four times a page. Included is the catalogue of New South Wales' exhibits and list of jury award winners.
