MINT - a NEW copy. Illustrated with Sepia-toned & Black and White Photographs. 231 pages Dr Edward Swarbreck Hall was a thorn in the side of the Establishment of Van Diemen's Land. For nearly fifty years after his arrival in 1833 he clashed with doctors, administrators, politicians and the clergy. As a doctor he protected the inmates of the convict system, the Cascades Female Factory and the Queen's Orphan Asylum from oppression and mistreatment. He agitated for the protection of the public from infectious diseases and their vaccination against smallpox, and he defended Catholics and Catholicism from sectarian attack by Protestant critics. But he was also a pioneer epidemiologist of international repute, a perceptive shipboard diarist and a devoted father and husband. ID292503

Octavo Size [approx 15.5 x 22.8cm]. MINT - a NEW copy. Illustrated with colour and black & white plates. 170 pages For a century and a half town criers walked the streets of Australian capital cities, regional centres, and country towns, ringing their bells and conveying their messages. Australia's first town crier was a convict who arrived with the First Fleet, and there have been town criers ever since, throughout the country. Town criers once played an important role in communities without radio and in which literacy was far from universal. Even today town criers continue to amuse and delight the Australian public. This fascinating account is the first to tell their full story. ID285715

MINT - a NEW copy. Illustrated with Black and White Photographs. xiv, 347 pages From the late 19th century to the 1950s, many wool buyers from the Flanders region of France and Belgium emigrated to Australia with their families to establish careers as buyers for the woollen mills of Europe. A peaceful period of business building ended suddenly in 1914 when the Flanders men of Australia returned to the defence of their homeland. Their villages, towns and fields became the site of some of the worst killing of World War One. They fought and died in battles all along the Western Front. Jacqueline Dwyer's grandfather came to Australia in 1889 and her father, Jacques, saw action with both French and Australian units. Through the life of this family a story of immigration, commerce and war is brought vividly to life. ID294536
