Brief Remarks on Colonization [caption title]
London: Harrison and Co., no date but, 1846. Octavo, 16 pp., no title-page (as issued); disbound, in a simple modern linen case. Exceedingly rare pamphlet by the son of John and Elizabeth. Very rare pamphlet on colonisation by Sir Edward Macarthur, almost never offered on the market. Macarthur (1789-1872) was the eldest son of John and Elizabeth Macarthur. He had a long career in Australia including service in New South Wales and Victoria, and was in the 1840s a strong advocate of emigration to the colony. 'A very rare pamphlet, a copy of which was found among the Macarthur Papers, now in the Mitchell Library, Sydney' (Ferguson). Ferguson records that the fuller title and date is based on the wrappers on the Mitchell copy (not present here); Ferguson also noted the Mitchell copy only, but a second is now held in the National Library.
