    Bound volumes of the Sydney Morning Herald from the period of 1880 to 1898.

Expand your museum’s collection with rare bound copies of the Sydney Morning Herald from the period of 1880 to 1898. Lithgow & District Family History Society are seeking a new home for the volumes due to the space constraints of their library.

The volumes are in various states of repair - as can be seen from the photos above. There are four volumes for each year and each volume weighs approximately 10 kg.

Ideally the volumes would stay together as a complete collection, however the society will accommodate an interest in a particular year or volume.

This is a great opportunity to round out a collection or exhibit with a rare artefact from Australia's past!

To request a copy of one or more volumes, arrange an inspection or see more images, please contact the society on ldfhs@lisp.com.au, (02) 6353 1089.

Museums & Galleries of NSW helps small-medium museums, galleries and Aboriginal cultural centres create exciting experiences for visitors and, through this, thriving local NSW communities. We don't run museums, galleries and cultural centres but we care about those who do. We develop their skills, connect them with others in the industry, provide funding, point visitors their way, and give them access to ground-breaking exhibitions.

Museums & Galleries of NSW is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
