Kennedy of Cape York – Beale – First Edition 1970

Short Description

A first edition, published by Rigby in 1970. Edgar Beale’s superb account. Large octavo, 281 pages with numerous illustrations and maps. Very good condition. A solid book.

Edmund Kennedy left England as a young man with a plan to become famous. The tireless explorer was to find his end ambushed by aboriginals in a swamp in Cape York.

Kennedy was taken north by Owen Stanley and we particularly like the interaction of Kennedy with a young Thomas Huxley well before he became Darwin’s Bulldog. The image we show here in the rainforest is from a drawing by Huxley …

Well researched and thoroughly supported narrative with relevant illustrations

Beale the expert on Kennedy

Price: $35.00
