The Man From Snowy River, published in 1917 while Banjo Paterson was on active duty in the Middle East, includes his arguably most famous ballad. Some of the verses, as a note from Paterson points out, had never been published prior to the Pocket Edition edition, which made it an especially exciting publishing event for a war-shocked public.

This historically important facsimile edition, published to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War One, has been minted from one of eight extremely rare books of poetry - designed as little reminders of home for soldiers to slip into a pocket and carry through the fighting in the trenches.

 

Hard cover, 188 pages.
