“The Maniac Father and the Convict Brother are Gone – The Poor Girl, Homeless, Friendless, Deserted, Destitute, and Gin Mad, Commits Self Murder.”
David Bogue, 86 Fleet Street and J. Sands, Sydney, New South Wales
Title page pasted on recto of Plate I; Plates II–VIII are each printed on the recto of one leaf. First edition of one shilling issue. All plates were produced by glyptography, a new, cheaper form of etching that allowed the image to be printed in relief with the text, and the production of a much longer print run.
