Complete set of six lithographic views of colonial South Australia, by Edward Castle who came to South Australia in 1839 on board the Moffatt and took up land in the colony. These very rare suite of lithographs made only three years after settlement of Adelaide in 1836, are part of handful of early colonial South Australian images made for prospective emigrants and investors in Britain. Each lithograph is matted and presented in a Solander box with green morocco spine, gilt bands and red title label. 1. Bushmen at Camp Mouth of the Salt Creek SA 2. Hungry Bushmen after Beef, Scene near the Maria Creek SA 3. Kangaroo Hunting in SA 4. Mount Gambier, SA 5. Scene on the River Murray SA 6. The Rocky Creek SA Edward Castle was born in Bristol and arrived in South Australia on the Moffat in 1839 and took up land. The prints were lithographed by the well known lithographers Alfred and Rose Pocock of in Bristol. The family connection with Bristol would have been the reason why the prints were lithographed and published in Bristol. The Pococks at the time were actively promoting their lithographic printing business, by advertising their services in various newspapers and via their own printed flyers. They also supplied materials for lithographers and offered advice: 'directions given to assist Young Practitioners'.
