New Norcia, Western Australia Presented in a 1 frame (15 page exhibit) with 3 sets of Italian produced postcards printed from the later 1920's. The first 2 sets, each of 12 cards are complete. Of the third set only 2 cards are represented with the display stating that "only 3 have ever been seen"! As few postally used examples have ever been recorded it is not surprising that all these cards are fine unused. The first set of cards was also printed in 2 different booklet formats of 12 cards perforated at left edge. Both of these complete booklets are present in the display. Incls "The story of New Norcia" edition 4 (1979) & edition 7 (1991) printed in WA, prepared & published by the Benedictine community of New Norcia, WA. A rare & intriguing lot.
