The Emigrant Family: or, The Story of an Australian Settler. By the Author of Settlers and Convicts
London, Smith, Elder and Co. 1849 - First Edition, first issue in the original cloth. A superb set. Ferguson, 5061. Miller/Macartney, p219. Three volumes. Green blind-stamped cloth, gilt lettering to spine, all edges uncut. A significant and scarce colonial novel. This rare novel provides the most realistic and comprehensive account of early colonial life in Australia. A valuable reference source for social historians, who have found in them informed and accurate comments on such features of the colonial scene as the convict system, the Aborigines, land reform, modes of transport, bushrangers, urban and outback life styles. The Emigrant Family, in spite of its length, is one of the major works of fiction of the period. (The Oxford Companion to Australian Literature, p346). Westleys & Co. of London binding ticket on rear pastedown. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
