[The Melbourne Rose. Part II. Honour to the brave memory of John King, R. O’Hara Burke, William John Wills]. [London : Myers & Co., 1862 (printed in Hamburg)]. Chromolithographed and engraved folding pictorial ephemeron, die cut in the shape of a rose (small loss to a couple of small pieces in the centre), without the original gilt-printed envelope which bears the title and imprint. The Davidson copy, auctioned in 2008, also lacked the envelope. A very rare and significant Melbourne related publication based on the engravings of S. T. Gill. Each example we have handled has had a different combination of scenes.
