The perfect collector’s item – a beautiful facsimile edition of A. B. ‘Banjo’ Paterson’s classic ballads, published by Angus & Robertson during World War One as a gift from home to the soldier in the trenches. Saltbush Bill, J.P., and Other Verses, with illustrations by Lionel Lindsay, was published in 1917, when Banjo Paterson was himself was on active service in the Middle East. It includes poems such as ‘Saltbush Bill on the Patriarchs’ (for some biblical wisdom), ‘The Wisdom of Hafiz’ (some advice to take to the races), and one of Paterson’s most famous ballads, ‘Waltzing Matilda’. This edition, published to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War One, has been minted from one of eight extremely rare books of verse originally published by Angus & Robertson as little reminders of home for soldiers to slip into a pocket and carry through the fighting. It features original layout, illustrations, advertising and blurbs, as well as the special ‘Trench’ dust jacket that wraps around the regular jacket, missing on nearly all of the rare extant original editions.
