    A Statistical, Historical and Political Description of the Colony of New South Wales, and its dependent settlements in Van Diemen’s land, with a particular enumeration of the advantages which these colonies offer for emigration ….

    Book description: Limited facsimile edition of 1819 original published by Doubleday, Sydney 1978. Thick octavo, 466 pp., half leather and cloth in fine condition. This is number 33 of a special edition of only 50 copies signed by W.C Wentworth the great grandson of the author who also wrote the forward.

    This was the first original work to be published by a native born Australian. Wentworth, the “Australian patriot” and chief founder of the system of colonial self-government, was born on Norfolk Island, then a penal dependency of New South Wales, where his father was the government surgeon. His enthusiastic and glowing description of the colony, which he argued was far superior to the United States as a field settlement, played a major role in attracting many new free emigrants. Also expounded are Wentworth’s on parliamentary self government, a goal which was eventually achieved in 1842.

    A most interesting and detailed account
