'A passion for exploring new countries'. Matthew Flinders & George Bass, Bastian, Josephine
20 Bastian, Josephine 'A passion for exploring new countries'. Matthew Flinders & George Bass
North Melbourne Australian Scholarly Publishing 2016 1925333728 / 9781925333725 1st Edition Trade Paperback 
MINT - a NEW copy. Illustrated with colour plates. Black and white maps. 301 pages Flinders wanted to be an explorer 'second only to Cook', Bass a naturalist, another Sir Joseph Banks, and a rich Sydney trader. For eight years these two pursued their destiny. Their voyages changed the map of Australia, and Flinders gave it its name. They were ready for even greater ventures. Their incredible story is all true – everything in it did happen. This book is historically rigorous, yet its protagonists' fascinating and contrasting characters, the powerful background of the Napoleonic War, and the extraordinary events of their lives make it as gripping as any novel. ID292096
