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

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

    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 Here he draws further on unpublished papers of Robinson and on Colonial Government records.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

  • Views in Australia, or New South Wales and Van Diemen’s Land – Lycett Facsimile

    Views in Australia, or New South Wales and Van Diemen’s Land – Lycett Facsimile

    Delineated, in Fifty Views, with Descriptive Letter Dedicated with Permission to the Right Hon’ble Earl Bathhurst

    This is the only facsimile of the rarely seen Views by Joseph Lycett originally published in London in 1824. A landscape presentation in decorated slipcase (as shown) – fine condition. A heavy item which might require a little more postage … we will try to be helpful.

    Lycett was a convict artist of great distinction – he had been sent out for forgery. He was pardoned and later returned to England where he again went about his forger’s ways – he took his own life in prison.

    His artistry is unique and charming with 50 images of New South Wales mainly in and around Sydney and also many of Tasmania with some beautiful images of Hobart, the Derwent and the surrounding mountains.

    Voyager also has an original Lycett of a Tasmanian view … see our Prints …

    Such beautiful images originally from 1824
