Melbourne Australian Scholarly Publishing 2012 192187564X / 9781921875649 1st Edition Softcover 
Large octavo size [16x24cm approx]. MINT - a NEW copy. Illustrated with Black & White Photographs and Maps. 248 pages Long before there was Canberra, there was Canberry. At a deep waterhole on the Molongo River Aboriginal people gathered for a corroboree, a Waterloo veteran dispossessed them by establishing a cattle station and of his convicts turned bushranger. The place then hosted in turn a courthouse, a parsonage, a piggery and a sheep stud. After Federation, Canberry, which had been renamed Acton by an absent English landlord, became the base from which the national capital was built. The book explores, through the stories of its occupants down the centuries, the history of this remarkable microcosm, and tells how its Aboriginal name survived to grace a city for all Australians, black and white. ID270767

North Melbourne Australian Scholarly Publishing 2015 1925333280 / 9781925333282 1st Edition Hardback 
Large octavo size [16x24cm approx]. Mint copy in a Mint Dustjacket. A New Copy. Dustjacket protected in a purpose-made plastic sleeve. Illustrated with colour and black & white plates. 335 pages James Chisholm was an important pioneer of colonial Australia, contributing to its business and banking, democratic processes and pastoral industry, yet historians have ignored him for two hundred years. He left his native Scotland as a young soldier and travelled half way around the world to a new land where from being a corporal in the Rum Corps he rose to become a leading merchant in Sydney. In a life characterised by faith, loyalty, family and self-improvement, this gruff but quietly spoken Scot, of 'genial and kindly disposition', commanded wide respect and made his mark on a new society. ID287255
