Melbourne Australian Scholarly Publishing 2013 1925003590 / 9781925003598 1st Edition Trade Paperback 
MINT - a NEW copy. Colour and black & white illustrations. The discolouration at the spine edge in the picture is actually part of the cover not a flaw. 268 pages The southern hemisphere is mainly land. So said medieval Europeans, raised on a heady brew of folklore, biblical revelation and geographical theory. It is how they imagined it. So powerful was the hold of this received wisdom that when geographical discoveries, however insignificant, were made in the southern oceans, they were greeted as evidence that the expected continental landmasses, rich and fertile, might at last have been found. ID276073

The Wild Colonial Boys: Jack Doolan and His Song, Mawer, Granville Allen
196 Mawer, Granville Allen The Wild Colonial Boys: Jack Doolan and His Song
North Melbourne Arcadia 2016 1925333930 / 9781925333930 Revised and Updated Edition Softcover 
12mo [approx 12.7x18.7cm]. MINT - a NEW copy. Black & white illustrations. 98 pages First published in 2004. Allen Mawer found John Doolan and confirmed that the song was right to say that he had been born in Castlemaine. Even more remarkably, Doolan's personal history had connections with the song. And how that came about was quite a story in itself. This revised edition incorporates additional family research by Joy Munns that has traced the last years of John Doolan's brief life after his release from Pentridge in 1882. It also updates research into the song, narrowing the date range for its creation and further undermining the argument for its Irish rather than Australian origin. ID293717
