However the project to produce a lavish lithographed sketchbook was never completed. For further information on the association between Gill and Doyle, as well as a critique of the drawings, see Dr. Doyle's sketches in Australia : a collection of prints from the original watercolour drawings in the Mitchell Library / S.T. Gill ; with notes on the drawings and an historical account of the association between S.T. Gill and Dr. J.T. Doyle by Sasha Grishin. Sydney : Mitchell Library Press and Centaur Press, 1993.
