Thread Name: Lyr Req: Outside Track (Henry Lawson)
Subject: RE: Outside Track - Henry Lawson
G'day again Charley,
Actually ... I now see that the correct title is Henry Lawson - Collected Verse. My copies are:
~ Volume One: 1885-1900 (the great one!, Angus & Robertson, Australia, 1967, reprinted 1981. ISBN 0 207 14379 X
~ Volume Two: 1901-1909, Angus & Robertson, Australia, 1968, reprinted 1981. ISBN 0 207 14387 O
~ Volume Three: 1910-1922, Angus & Robertson, Australia, 1969. National Library of Australia Registry Number AU68-2745.
The first two volumes I picked up around the end of the reprint period ... but the third was finally sourced from Berlelouw's Rare Book Barn (the third one back ...) down at Bowral. Berkelouw's do have a book search engine at their web site (www.berkelouw.com.au ...?) - but that do take the "rare book" description seriously!
Some years back I did an interview with one of Henry Lawson's nieces (one of Peter James Lawson's daughters) .. and a few of her brothers and sisters. There should be a rambling tape recording ... somewhere ... from which I produced a small interview article in Mulgas Wire ... about 1980 ... along with a rather dubious song written and published by Peter and Charles - Henry's brothers! (A Little Town Called Budgee Budgee ...?)
