This rare engraving is from the original edition of The Australasian Sketcher,
an illustrated newspaper which was published in Melbourne from 1873 to
1889. It was issued on a monthly basis and included a number of high
quality engravings to illustrate the news and article. The reason it was
issued on a monthly basis was due to the time consuming process of
engraving the illustrations which would take one engraver between one
and two weeks to make each engraving. This is also coincided with the
monthly shipping of mail to England.
Many famous Australian colonial artists were employed such as Julian
Ashton, Albert Cooke, Oswald Rose Campbell, Alfred James Daplyn, Samuel
Calvert and Elizier Levi Montefiore.
