1849. [4], 190, [2] pp.First edition of the German translation of an emigrant's guide to New South-Wales, Australia. The work was written by John Pattison and published anonymously, based on his own experiences during his twelve year stay in Australia. It was first published in 1849, entitled New South-Wales: its past, present and future condition, with notes upon its resources and capabilities. The short preface states that is was published "with the hope that it may add to the diffusion of truthful information respecting Australia, and the knowledge that is will not mislead" (English edition). It starts with a brief history of "New Holland" and its first settlers, and continues with a description of its population, the high need for skilled labourers, and all kinds of information the emigrant should know before going to Australia. With a library stamp on title-page and the first and last few pages foxed. Otherwise a very good copy.l Bodi 4717; Engelmann I, p. 241. cf. Ferguson IV, 5137.
