Arcadian Adelaide and With Thistle Anderson in Edwardian Adelaide by Derek Whitelock., Anderson, Thistle; Whitelock, Derek
1 Anderson, Thistle; Whitelock, Derek Arcadian Adelaide and With Thistle Anderson in Edwardian Adelaide by Derek Whitelock.
Adelaide Wakefield Press 1985 0949268186 / 9780949268181 Facsimile Edition Hardback 
Octavo Size [approx 15.5 x 22.8cm]. Fine copy in Fine dustjacket. As new condition. DJ protected in purpose-made plastic sleeve. Black and white frontispiece. 64 pages Originally published in 1905. Includes a lengthy preamble by Derek Whitelock on Adelaide at the time the book was first published and a brief biography of Thistle Anderson [Mrs Herbert Fisher]. This is followed by a facsimile of Thistle Anderson's book. The book drew a ferocious response at the time of publication as in it the author made such claims as that there were more opium dens in Adelaide than Melbourne. Nevertheless it still went into 10 editions - proving a best seller. A fascinating glimpse of the life and customs of Adelaide at the beginning of the twentieth century ID251432

Large octavo size [16x24cm approx]. Very Good in Very Good Dustjacket. DJ protected in purpose-made plastic sleeve. Illustrated with Black and White plates. 146 pages According to the author, the story of Matthew Flinders is probably one of the great stories of the world - not so much because of his towering achievements but of what happened to him thereafter. In this biography the author uses both biographical writing technique but also sets this in a framework of psycho-analysis which, in the authors opinion, reveals an inevitability of Flinders' tragic end. A very human look at this well known explorer. ID159961
