8vo, X, 369pp. Hardcover and d/w in excellent condition with the tiniest stain on fore-edge protected by clear archival covering, text in excellent condition with a neat prior owner’s name on ffep. This very scholarly work is the product of a ten year in-depth investigation of archives in Australia, Britain, Ireland and France and set within the wider context of colonial development, the result is a convincing new portrait of a life entirely different from that depicted in other accounts emphasizing a depraved convict background. A must read volume for students of early Australian history.
