Three issues: Vol I, no 5 (pp57-72), October 1859; Vol III, no 34 (pp119-34), February 1862 & Vol V, no 54 (pp45-60), October 1863. Old staples, then bound in faux leather with plain endpapers: the work of bibliophile Peter Benson Walker whose bookplate is on the front paste-down. A little foxing and some slight damage to the last few leaves of the first issue. ***Issued monthly. Each of the issues bears the name of James Backhouse Walker at the head of the first page, two in pencil and one in ink (this partly trimmed off). One of the advertisements in the 1862 issue announces the imminent publication of 'Bush Flowers of Tasmania: a second series' by Louisa Anne Meredith; prematurely as it happens, for the second (or 'last') series of Bush Friends in Tasmania did not appear until 1891. Adjacent to this notice is the announcement of the 1862 Walch's 'book almanac', the fore-runner to the long-running Walch's 'red book' almanac series (1863-1979/80).
