Documents on Australian Defence and Foreign Policy 1968-1975
Walsh & Munster (eds), J. R. & G. J.
Self published,  1980. First Edition
 Hardcover (Original Cloth) Hardcover (Original Cloth). Very Good Condition/Very Good. First Edition. An extremely rare book that has accumulated a little history of its own. Munster and Walsh braved the fury of the Australian Government, and following the book's publication, the Government issued an interim injunction to ban the book, citing both the Crimes act and the Copyright act. Copies of the first edition, of which this is one, were impounded and they even went as far as to also seize the print runs of newspapers that reproduced extracts. The Government seemed especially uncomfortable with certain details in the book, dealing with Australia's involvement with the Indonesian invasion of East Timor. An extremely important work. Size: Octavo (standard book size). Text body is clean, and free from previous owner annotation, underlining and highlighting. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. Dust Jacket is in very good condition, without tears or chips or other damage. Dust Jacket un-clipped. Edges very slightly spotted or marked. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

In 1867 Francis Napier joined the South Australian Government expedition under Captain Francis Cadell to the north coast of the state (now the Northern Territory) searching for suitable sites for a capital and agricultural settlement. He examined the Liverpool River, went up the Roper River in a small steamer and visited Port Darwin, Anson Bay and the Victoria River. Cadell's report, published in the South Australian Parliamentary Papers for 1867, was criticised at the time. Thus, the Napier 'Notes' are the only public account of the expedition, and are an important document of the early contact and charting of the region. Compiled from the Napier journal by his family, and privately printed in Glasgow following his death in 1875. The plates, drawn with lithographic crayon, are by a brother of Napier, and are signed 'JMN'. (Ferguson 13058. Scarce. Small bookshop stickers: A. H. Spencer Hill of Content, Berkelouw Bookdealers. All five maps present: 1 internal page, and 4 as foldouts. All 8 lithographic plates present, as listed on contents page.).

Nutmeg and pepper drove this wealthy Dutch merchant to try to break the monopoly on trade routes to the East Indies, and inspired him to forge a new route to the lucrative spice sources via the southern tip of South America. He was influenced by the famous voyage of de Quiros, the Portuguese navigator who believed he had reached Terra Australis, the great southland. The expedition had dual goals: to chart a new course to the Pacific, and to find the great southern continent.

A scarce book of engravings of scenes from Dickens by an Australian artist, and published in Australia. The etchings depict memorable scenes from his early novels, particularly Pickwick Papers. There are two title pages, one engraved and one letterpress, and an introduction. Interleaved between the engravings are a page with a small text box that include quotations from his novels. Plate 7 is presented in two states (one on India paper). Printing of the etchings was supervised by C. M. Buck. Podeschi H1042. Ferguson 9140A. Christopher John Coveny (1846 - 1941) abandoned his law practice briefly for teaching, but then became an engraver. This is his most famous work. His etchings were similar to those of Phiz - so he did two extra plates (title page & plate 7) to prove his originality (as explained in a preliminary note). His career was short-lived, however, as he suffered a nervous breakdown in 1884.

Contains all four plates (rarely found). Review: "This is an Australian love story pure and simple. A young Queenslander falls in love with a fascinating girl from town but is jilted in favour of a titled man with money. He becomes a misogynist of the deepest dye, and buries himself in a veritable wilderness called Rocky Section — miles from anywhere. One day he discovers a girl near his place who has evidently lost her way and fainted from sheer exhaustion. He takes her to his hut and revives her, only to find that she has lost her memory and cannot tell where she comes from. He hates women with a bitter hatred, but is on the horns of a dilemma. What happens? "The way out" is most interesting, but you must read it for yourself.".
