Exhibition - London 1873; Melbourne 1872-73 & Vienna 1873. - London International Exhibition of 1873. (Melbourne, 1872-73). Official Record, containing introduction, catalogues, reports and recommendations of the experts, official awards ...

Melbourne, Mason Firth &c 1873. Octavo publisher's cloth (spine ends repaired) ; xxiv,224,viii,44,32,120,160,20,12,17,34,8,30,20pp. First few pages spotted, 1873 stamp of the 'Chief Secretary's Office' on the title. ¶ Quite uncommon. This was the first of the ambitious but fairly short series of annual international exhibitions (begun in 1871) in London to which Victoria sent a major contribution. As was usually the case a preliminary exhibition was held in Melbourne. Here we have the catalogues for this Melbourne Exhibition, the catalogue for the London Exhibition and the catalogue for the Vienna International Exhibition of 1873 in which Victoria also took part. As well as the other reports and stuff there is a series of essays, of which John Bleasdale's "On Wines" (34pp) is probably the most interesting now. Some but not all copies have a map; the State Library of Victoria notes that only one of their copies has a map. This doesn't.
