Series I: Governors' Despatches to and from England (26 volumes, 1914-25). Series III: Despatches and Papers relating to the Settlement of the States (6 volumes, 1921-23). Series IV: Legal papers (1 volume, 1922). 33 volumes in total, all published (at the time, see note re Series III below). The projected Series II was never issued. This set is uniformly bound in blue cloth with gilt titles and rules on the spines - the later binding (1970s) using, for most volumes, the original sheets (a few volumes were reprinted in 1971). A very good clean set. ***Series III was resumed in 1997 with the publication of Volume VII, covering despatches and papers relating to Van Diemen's Land in 1828; this volume is now out of print but we can supply new copies of Volumes VIII, IX & X (covering 1829-31); if purchased with this set, at $100 each. More volumes are planned, including a continuation of Series I relating to NSW.
