[A Collection of Five Attractive Original Early Unsigned Watercolours of Australia Including Botany Bay, Lake Midgeon, Wagga-Wagga; Tamar River, Tasmania (x2) and the Title of the Collection "Homeward Bound"].
Ca. 1870. Four album oblong folio leaves. The five mounted watercolours each ca. 16x29 cm (6 ½ x 11 ½ in) or slightly smaller, with pencil captions on mounts. Mounts with a couple of minor marginal tears, but otherwise a very good collection. An attractive collection of scenic watercolours of colonial Australia. The Botany Bay (Sydney) view shows the bay with a steam ship moored at a pier. The Lake Midgeon view shows a homestead in the background with a lake (Midgeon) and a bridge in the foreground. Today Lake Midgeon has dried up and is now Mejum Swamp. The first Tamar River view shows a steam and sail ship while the second view is purely a river view.
