Journals of Two Expeditions of Discovery in North-West and Western Australia during the Years 1837, 38 and 39, Grey, George
5304 Grey, George Journals of Two Expeditions of Discovery in North-West and Western Australia during the Years 1837, 38 and 39
Adelaide Libraries Board of South Australia 1964 Facsimile Edition Hardcover 
Octavo Size [approx 15.5 x 22.8cm]. Very Good condition. Two [2] volumes. Red boards with gilt to spine. Fold-out maps. Colour and black & white illustrations. Facsimile reprint of 1841 edition. Australiana Facsimile Editions No. 8. Peade A8. 412, 482 pages. Sir George Grey (1812-1898) was an explorer, governor and politician. In 1836 wrote to the Colonial Office offering to lead an expedition to seek a site for settlement in north-western Australia. With support from the Royal Geographical Society, Grey's plan was approved and he sailed in the Beagle in July 1837. They reached Hanover Bay (near Collier Bay) and after several short excursions started inland on 29 January 1838. Grey and his men were totally inexperienced, progress was delayed by flooded country, many stores were abandoned, and the party was constantly split up despite the presence of large numbers of hostile Aboriginals. The party discovered and named the Glenelg River, Stephen Range and Mount Lyell before returning to Hanover Bay. There they were picked up by the Beagle and Lynher and taken to Mauritius to recuperate. In September Grey went to Perth hoping to resume his 'adventures'. In February 1839 he sailed for Shark Bay where he and his ten men were landed on Bernier Island with three whale-boats in which he intended to explore northward to North-West Cape. After ship departed, the party was delayed by gales and found the island waterless. In desperation they crossed to the mainland but stuck trouble again and the northern journey was abandoned. Grey then decided to go to Perth by boat, although he knew there was no landing place for 100 miles (161 km). In heavy surf at Gantheaume Bay both boats were wrecked and the party faced a 300-miles (483 km) forced march, sustained by what little food and water they could find reaching Perth on 21 April and all except one of his men straggled in later. Despite all of this his journals describe many newly discovered, important, and fertile districts, with observations on the moral and physical condition of the Aboriginal inhabitants etc. ID254497
