About this Item: 1994. Switzerland, Edition Limitee, first edition of 1000 copies, folio, ppxviii + 284, colour and black and white illustrations and maps, black cloth in dustwrapper. These paintings were first recorded by Joseph Bradshaw in 1891, when he was lost on a Kimberley expedition in the north-west of Australia. They were originally thought to date from about 50,000 years ago, but modern archaeology places them more recently, at about 20,000 years. According to Aboriginal legend, they were made by birds. It was said that these birds pecked the rocks until their beaks bled, and then created these fine paintings by their own blood with their beak tip, or a tail feather. The most exhaustive work on these paintings was carried out by Grahame Walsh, who began work in 1977 and returned to record and locate new sites up until his death in 2007. The extraordinary colour photographs he has provided, along with his text and diagrams, are a magnificent record. Dustwrapper a trifle rubbed, otherwise a very good copy indeed.

About this Item: Edition Limitee, Geneva, Switzerland, 1994. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Limited edition. Roughly 65,000 years ago the earliest humans arrived in Australia from Timor and eventually created astonishing works of art in the Kimberley region of northwest Australia, making them perhaps the oldest paintings of human figures ever created. Called the Bradshaws after Joseph Bradshaw (who first recorded them in 1891), or the Gwion Gwion, the mystery of their creation has not been solved and has become a politically and culturally charged issue. Grahame Walsh (1944 - 2007), the author and world's leading expert on the Bradshaws, made thousands of photographs of these sophisticated works and was commissioned by the Australian government to produce a book considered to be the finest in its field ('Australia's Greatest Rock Art') for the Bicentenary. Large 4to, xviii, 285pp, illustrations include 99 full page color plates. Black gilt cloth. Original pictorial dust jacket with illustrations in black silhouette at front cover, title in black at white dust jacket spine. OCLC: 221613465. Trove 23687823. Seller Inventory # 17493

About this Item: Takarakka Nowan Kas Publications, in association with The Australian Centre, University of Melbourne, Toowong, 2000. Hardcover. First Edition. Oblong folio, [vi], xiv, 464 pages with over 2000 illustrations and over 620 colour plates. Synthetic leather with a colour plate mounted on the front cover; a few tiny marks to the leading margins of one opening (pages 366-67 - a trifling production blemish); small section of the top edge of the rear pastedown very lightly nibbled; essentially an unread copy, now protected with a custom-made Mylar dustwrapper. An unparalleled 'visual record of ancient Kimberley rock art, dealing specifically with periods predating the Ice Age' - and an absolute rarity. Grahame Walsh died in 2007, aged 62; an insight into the nature of the man and this book may be found in this extract from his obituary by Nicolas Rothwell, published in 'The Australian', 24 August 2007. It was in the Kimberley that Walsh 'encountered the two art traditions that would dominate his later years. The Bradshaw rock paintings are ancient and extend across an arc of the north Kimberley. They depict graceful figures engaged in display or hunt. The Wandjina paintings, much more recent, mark the last crescendo of Kimberley Aboriginal art. In their best-known form, they show round, wide-eyed faces surrounded by ghostly halo circles. To Walsh, both these traditions had an intense appeal. Backed by private sponsors, he prepared the first large book on the Bradshaws. It appeared in 1994. By this stage, Walsh was becoming a figure of notoriety in the academic rock art world. It was plain he was a field photographer of brilliance and a persistent finder of lost sites. But he was without formal qualifications and his somewhat controversy-courting ideas about pre-Aboriginal civilisations in the far north triggered a storm of predictable fury. The result was a damaging split between Walsh and the academy: damaging, arguably, for both sides. Walsh had found a fresh forum for his ideas and a wider audience. Perhaps, in all the twisting course of his life, no turn was stranger than the one that brought him into contact, and friendship, with the leaders of Australia's legal and corporate worlds. Unusual backers began funding his research. He was especially close to Dame Elisabeth Murdoch and Maria Myers, to both of whom he dedicated his masterpiece, "Bradshaw Art of the Kimberley", a vast, unclassifiable book, part photographic essay, part speculative anthropology, bound in purple mock-crocodile skin. A photograph of the author glowers from the frontispiece: he sits, a pair of cameras at the ready, beside a Bradshaw panel, wearing his favourite battered black Akubra, souvenired from the aftermath of a bar-room brawl in Camooweal. It is clear today that 2000, when the "purple crocodile" was published, marked the moment of Walsh's greatest difficulty as well as the first pinnacle of his public renown. Protests from Kimberley Aboriginal groups angered by his interpretation of the Bradshaw style redoubled; rock art experts resented his refusal to share his data or provide access to sites he knew. But the overwhelming detail collected in "Bradshaw Art" and the depth of his knowledge of the tradition made their own case. It became impossible to deny that Walsh, through his solitary efforts, had uncovered a vast, half-forgotten realm of indigenous art'. THIS COPY IS SIGNED AND DATED BY THE AUTHOR 'Grahame L. Walsh. October 2000'. The book is scarce on the open market these days; signed copies are rarely offered. Please use the 'Ask Bookseller a Question' link below to confirm availability and postage charges.
