Jarvis, Jadwiga
The Wayzgoose Affair
Wayzgoose Press, Katoomba, 2007.
Folio hardcover; black Toyo Saifu cloth boards with blind-stamped spine titling and upper board insignia, endpapers illustrated in colour; 177pp., colour illustrations. Limited edition of 500 copies. Fine in red and black dustwrapper. This is the story of the Wayzgoose Press, a prestigious small press established in the Blue Mountains in 1985. To date the press has produced 20 books and 50 broadsides in limited editions of between 10 and 50 copies, as well as numerous ephemeral paintings. All texts are hand set, illustrated with relief imagery (wood engravings, linocuts, monoprints and collographs), printed on a proof press and hand-bound or hand-assembled and housed in a purpose-made box. A small number of copies from each edition are enclosed in a designer binding which, like the so called edition bindings, have very little in common with traditional book binding. Every aspect of production, sometimes even the writing, takes place in house, or, more precisely, in shed. 'Wayzgoose' is an old English word referring to the annual printers' picnic - as ironically the press found that printing by hand 'ain't no picnic'. Incorporated into its production - the book artists armoury - typography, layout, colour, design, illustrations, textures, binding etc., are all used to give the printed word an individual presence through a tangible, creative and germane setting. A love of black humour and the occasional profanities (Ockers) add textual meat and an element of adventure to their publications, together with the visual puns, the symbolism, literary references and the vibrant colour. In compiling the Wayzgoose Affair, the author has used excerpts from her correspondence with friends, colleagues, supporters and occasionally detractors, to compile an instructive and amusing story. She records the setbacks, successes, irritations and even disasters with a wicked wit and an often critical perceptiveness.

Kay, Phillip
The Far-Famed Blue Mountains of Harry Phillips
Megalong Books/Second Back Row Press, Leura NSW, 1985.
Quarto; paperback, with decorative endpapers; 96pp., with many monochrome illustrations. Minor wear; spine faded. Very good to near fine. Phillips, photographer, printer and publisher, produced at least eighty photographic books in the period 1909-1944, principally of Sydney and the Blue Mountains. During this period, photographic albums showing views of the local scenery around holiday spots were quite the fashion, reaching their pinnacle during the 1920s; Harry Phillips, with his collections of images from Katoomba and the Blue Mountains generally, turned this tourist catch-penny publishing game into an art form. Credited with single-handedly boosting the Blue Mountains' profile as a tourist destination across the world and of innovating such various phenomena as the Scenic Railway and the career of Frank Hurley (who was a devotee), Harry Phillips' name has come to be synonymous with the place in which he chose to work.

Langdon, Mark
Conquering the Blue Mountains
Eveleigh Press, Matraville NSW, 2006.
Quarto; hardcover, with illustrated boards and endpapers; 147pp., monochrome plates and a folding map. Minor wear only; near fine in like dustwrapper now professionally protected by superior non-adhesive polypropylene film. The first railway in New South Wales was opened in September 1855 between Sydney and Parramatta with the intention that it would be extended to Goulburn in the south and across the Blue Mountains to Bathurst in the west. The mountains had seemed an impenetrable barrier and initial reactions were that the building of a line was impracticable. Surveys however identified a suitable route and in 1863 work commenced. The author documents the planning and construction, the many difficulties encountered and the innovative solutions effected. The book includes many photographs of trains, locations and the personalities involved.

Dustwrapper now professionally protected by superior non-adhesive polypropylene film. In 1809, Lachlan Macquarie was appointed fifth Governor of the young European settlement in Sydney and in November of that year he set out on an inspection of the settlements along the floodplains of the Hawkesbury and Nepean Rivers to the west of Sydney, following a series of floods that had resulted in serious loss of life and property. These settlements along the floodplain had been established as early as 1794 and were important for the survival of the Sydney colony, as they produced almost half of the food supply needs. At the end of the tour, Macquarie determined that towns needed to be established on higher ground near the existing floodplain settlements. His aim was to encourage the residents of the flood plain holdings to relocate to the safety of the towns from which they could travel down to manage their farms during daytime hours. To this end, on 6 December 1810 at Government Cottage, Green Hills, Macquarie proclaimed the five towns that would become known as the 'Five Macquarie Towns'; Windsor (Green Hills), Richmond, Castlereagh, Pitt Town and Wilberforce.
