Early Tasmania by James Backhouse Walker, read before the Royal Society of Tasmania during the Years 1888 to 1899. The story of the first settlement of Tasmania, and of Lieutenant Bowen's little... More > colony at Risdon Cove, has never yet been told, so far as I can discover. West, Fenton, and other authors give meagre, inaccurate, and contradictory particulars. No writer records even the date of Bowen's landing. Mr. Bonwick's researches now, for the first time, enable us to give this missing first chapter of Tasmanian history. James Backhouse Walker (1841-1899), solicitor and historian, was born on 14 October 1841 in Hobart Town, son of George Washington Walker, shopkeeper, and his wife Sarah Benson, daughter of Robert Mather. Educated at the High School, Government Domain, Hobart, and at the Friends School, York, England, he was first employed as junior clerk in the office of T. D. Chapman and later in his father's Hobart Savings Bank.< Less

The Aborigines of Tasmania's Furneaux Group By Paul Tapp
Paperback: $39.95
Ships in 3-5 business days
In the opening years of the nineteenth century the islands in Bass Strait were the happy hunting grounds of sealers, and such was the fame of the region that sealers from as far afield as Mauritius... More > and New England came to share in the rich harvest. It was the practice of merchants of Hobart and Sydney to send gangs of sealers to live on the islands, providing them with some provisions, but expecting them in the main to subsist on the flesh of kangaroo, wombat, and emu. The producer of this book initially set out to publish a record of the out-of-print essay of highly regarded anthropologist A.L.Meston, a Launceston teacher, historian and humanitarian. Because of the need to qualify for a quarto Lulu self-publishing format, it was necessary to include material from other out of print publications...a fortuitous requirement, given the result, an insight into an otherwise forgotten part of Tasmania's and indeed global history of the callous and shameful treatment of indigenous inhabitants.< Less

A composite of accounts of whaling and sealing, including the A.L.Meston essay on 'Half-castes of the Furneaux Group'. They came from across the globe in tall ships, in billowing sails, iconic of an... More > era hell-bent on supplying the colonies and the giant cities of the northern hemisphere with their insatiable industrial needs. The many out of print publications to which I have referred, are conservative in their appraisal of the sealing and whaling hey-day of Tasmania, particularly the expansive bays and estuaries of the south and the islands of Bass Strait, the Furneaux Group. But it was the universal expression of the day of those authors, not to paraphrase in any emotional terms, the end result of that period of exploitation.They came, they slaughtered and regarded their new-found paradise as no more than their 'happy hunting-grounds' & moved on...for no other reason than that of the industrial pragmatic...there was nothing left. This publication salvages works otherwise lost to posterity.< Less
