Description:

William Charles Wentworth (1790-1872) was an Australian poet, explorer, journalist and politician, and one of the leading figures of early colonial New South Wales. He was the first native-born Australian to achieve a reputation overseas, and a leading advocate for self-government. The Illustrated Sydney News, which was published from 1853 to 1889 included a number of high quality engravings to illustrate the accompanying news and articles. It was issued on a monthly basis due to the time consuming process of having to engrave each illustration which would take an engraver between one and two weeks to make each one. Due to their ephemeral nature few have survived.
