WILSON, W. HARDY - Old Colonial Architecture in New South Wales and Tasmania

Title: Old Colonial Architecture in New South Wales and Tasmania
Description: Ure Smith, Sydney NSW, 1975. Quarto; paperback; 9pp., with 49 half-tone plates. Mild wear; endpapers and text block edges very lightly toned and spotted; covers a little faded. Very good to near fine. Hardy Wilson recorded the beauty of the old buildings of NSW not only with the pen of the architect, but also the eye of the painter. In his introduction to this collection of drawings, first published in 1924, he describes some of the journeys he made in his search for the early buildings of the colonial era and discusses the influence of Georgian architecture on that of Australia. Fifty plates illustrate the area explored, which extended in NSW from the vicinity of Port Macquarie on the north coast to Nowra and thence to the Bathurst and Goulburn districts as well as Tasmania.
