Wallis's New Game exhibiting a Voyage round The World.

London: John Wallis, nd. circa 1820.

Folding canvas-backed handcoloured engraved game, in original blind-stamped cloth slipcase with gilt title vignette; in very good original condition; lacks rule book.

A rare mention of Australia…

Very decorative bi-hemispherical race game of a voyage around the world, with Port Jackson and Van Diemen's Land as ports of call. It is indeed rare to find games that mention Australia from this early period. Wallis was one of the main publishers of games of the period.
