The Great South Land from Hordern House

Hordern House has prepared a magnificent new catalogue entitled The Great South Land. Searching for the antipodes, from classical scholars to Quiros & Dampier. Before describing the catalogue's content, we first need to mention its presentation. Hordern House produces some of the most spectacular book catalogues you will find, and this one is certainly no exception. Three-quarters of an inch thick, this is a large hardcover book, richly illustrated and filled with detailed descriptions of its books and subject matter. It will be a collectible soon enough itself.
