17 Plomley, N.J.B. Friendly Mission. The Tasmanian Journals and Papers of George Augustus Robinson 1829-1834 [plus Supplement]
Hobart Tasmanian Historical Research Association 1966[Supplement 1971] 1st Edition Hardback 
Large octavo size [16x24cm approx]. Very Good condition. No dustjacket as issued. Blue cloth boards. Endpaper maps. Illustrated with Black & White maps. Includes separate supplement - staplebound softcover issued in 1971. Previous owners signature to top of half-title page. A very nice, clean and tight copy. 1074, 32 pages Conflicts between settlers and Tasmanian Aborigines had vastly increased during the 1830s, which became known as the Black War. In 1830 Robinson investigated the Cape Grim massacre that had occurred in 1828 and reported that 30 Aborigines had been massacred. Robinson was to be brought in as a conciliator between settlers and Aborigines. His mission was to round up the Aborigines to resettle them at the camp of Wybalenna on Flinders Island. Robinson befriended Truganini, to whom he promised food, housing and security on Flinders Island until the situation on the mainland had calmed down. With Truganini, Robinson succeeded in forging an agreement with the Big River and Oyster Bay peoples, and by the end of 1835, nearly all the Aboriginals had been relocated to the new settlement. Robinson's involvement with the Tasmanian Aboriginals ended soon after this, though, and the Wybalenna settlement became more akin to a prison as the camp conditions deteriorated and many of the residents died of ill health and homesickness. Because of this, Robinson's place in history is generally viewed as negative, especially within the current Aboriginal community. Some historians agree that his initial intentions were genuine, but his abandonment of the community is viewed as a turning point for the worse for the Tasmanian Aboriginals. Moreover, his promises of providing a place where Aborigines could practice their cultural traditions and ceremonies never came to fruition. ID142813
