Square 4to. 162pp, profusely illustrated in colour and b&w. Cloth-textured papered boards with dustwrapper. A very good clean copy. ISBN 0646450034 ***Perhaps an odd fulcrum through which to examine Hobart's historic waterfront, but in the absence of a good published study of the area - and given that the quarry was central to the development of the 'New Wharf' and associated warehouses in the 1830s, was a centre for the city's early engineering trade, and is now a key part of contemporary Hobart's popular arts/entertainment/tourist precinct known these days simply as 'Salamanca' - this book fills the gap.
