Weep in Silence A history of the Flinders Island Aboriginal Settlement – Plomley

Short Description

An monumental work edited by Brian Plomley and published by Blubber Press in 1987.

A first edition, large octavo, 1034 pages with illustrations and endpaper maps. Very good condition albeit with some mild marks to page edges from use. Very good dust jacket.

Plomley had previously issued (1966) a work on this subject titled “Friendly Mission” which concentrated on the early activities of George Augustus Robinson. Here he draws further on unpublished papers of Robinson and on Colonial Government records. The Robinson journal from Flinders islands (1835-1839) is transcribed in full with extensive commentary and annotation. Also relevant extracts from the letters of Commandant William James Darling and the journals of James Backhouse and George Washington Walker. More readable than it sounds.

Important work on the Tasmania aboriginal people

Price: $120.00
