Historic star attraction at Lifeline's Huge Hunters Hill Book Fair

Saturday and Sunday Nov. 4-5, 8am 5pm

A rare, 125-year-old book of photographs and drawings of the nineteenth century's first Transit of Venus, in 1874, eclipses an intriguing array of historic books on sale at the Hunters Hill book fair, November 4 and 5.

Other antique publications include Tales of My Landlord (1819), Tent Life in Tiger Land (1888), signed by the author, J. Inglis and Twenty Scenes from the Works of Dickens, dated 1883, with gilt titles and top edge.

There are also treats for art lovers: a 1964 book of Russell Drysdale full-page colour plates and monochromes, signed by the artist using his nickname "Tass"; a collection of beautiful books about or by Australian women artists; and a wonderful selection of Aboriginal art.

Living up to its long-held reputation for outstanding quality and value, Lifeline Harbour to Hawkesbury will present up to 50,000 titles, all in excellent condition, ranging from children's literature and picture books, paperbacks, study guides and sci-fi, fine literature, history, politics, craft and cookery.

Quite literally - something for everyone at the Hunters Hill Town Hall, Nov 4 5, 8 am 5 pm. All inquiries call 02 9498 8805.
