Woodcuts by Geraldine Rede and Violet Teague. [Canberra : National Gallery of Australia, c. 2005]. Octavo, illustrated wrappers, cloth spine, unpaginated, french folds in the style of the original publication from 1905. Fine copy.

‘In 1905 Violet Teague, in collaboration with her friend Geraldine Rede, handprinted Night Fall in the Ti-Tree at the Sign of the Rabbit Press, in the Teague family home at 89 Collins Street, Melbourne. Nine decades later the charm of this book remains, the National Gallery of Australia having published a facsimile edition in 1988. Although Teague produced other prints and illustrated other books her reputation as a graphic artist rests on this publication’.
