BOYCE, James

Melbourne: Black Ink. 2008. First edition, second impression. 388pp, 3 maps. Cloth-textured papered boards with dustwrapper. A very good clean copy. Owner's details on half-title. ISBN 1863954139 ***Boyce seeks to describe how the convicts sent to VDL were changed by the natural world they encountered: 'behind the official attempt to create a Little England was another story of adaption, in which the poor, the exiled and the criminal made a new home in a strange land'. Also with an Appendix 'Towards Genocide: government policy on the Aborigines 1827-38' in which Boyce expands on the arguments presented in his essay "Fantasy Island", published in 'Whitewash: on Keith Windschuttle's Fabrication of Aboriginal History' (edited by Robert Manne: Black Ink, 2003). .

Dubbo: Review Publications. 1979. Australian Historical Monographs, reprint series. 22pp essay, illustrations; 32pp text of the poem, with facsimile of original title-page. Stapled in stiff green wrappers. A very good clean copy. ***Published in Hobart Town 1827 as 'The Van Diemen's Land Warriors, or The Heroes of Cornwall; a satire in three cantos' by Pindar Juvenal - an anonymous satire on the military's attempts to capture the notorious bushranger Matthew Brady (although the events of the poem are apparently fictitious - and it was published more than a year after Brady's execution). The book was suppressed as libellous and there are very few copies extant. The author may have been Robert Wales of Launceston. .

Case-bound with dustwrapper (extremities slightly rubbed). A second-hand copy in very good condition.

One major exploit - their successful circumnavigation of Van Diemen’s Land in 1798 and 1799 in the sloop Norfolk, which established beyond doubt the existence of Bass Strait and that Van Diemen’s Land was an island - has been overlooked to the extent that no separate work brings together source materials relating to the voyage.

[Launceston]. [1901]. Large folio. Manuscript title and 550pp of typescript (printed rectos only), prepared for the legal firm of Ritchie and Parker (see below). Half-bound in contrasting cloth with leather spine label (the cloth spine and corners appear to be a replacement of an earlier material, probably leather judging by the label). There are some pencilled annotations and much underlining, but the pages are clean and in very good condition, as is the binding. ***The case of the Van Diemen's Land Company v. Marine Board of Table Cape was before the courts for five years (October 1901 to October 1906), involving one appeal in Tasmania and another to the Privy Council in London, which ordered a re-trial in Tasmania, and incurring costs estimated at £12,000. Though at first glance a relatively minor matter concerning the ownership of a small strip of ‘foreshore’ land (that is, between the high and low water marks) at Emu Bay (Burnie), over which the Marine Board of Table Cape ...
