Back in the Stone Age The Natives of Central Australia, Chewings, Charles

Sydney Angus & Robertson 1936 1st Edition Hardback 
Large octavo size [16x24cm approx]. Very Good condition. No Dustjacket. Remnants of DJ available and will be included on purchase. Map to front endpaper. Illustrated with Black and White Photographs [all present]. 161 pages Charles Chewings was a geologist and anthropologist, was born on 1859 at Woorkongoree station, near Burra, South Australia. In 1881 Chewings set out alone from Beltana with two camels to explore the possibility of establishing a cattle-run in the western MacDonnell Ranges. In 1883 he travelled from Murat Bay to the Warburton Range to assess the area's pastoral possibilities. Impressed with the efficiency of camels in the interior, in 1884 Chewings sailed to India and shipped nearly 300 of them to Port Augusta. Next year he opened a camel transport service based on Hergott Springs (Marree), explored the MacDonnell Ranges more thoroughly, and stocked his cattle-run, Tempe Downs. He mapped and named Chapple Range and Mount Chapple, Northern Territory, after his old headmaster, F. Chapple. In 1902 he returned to South Australia and spent almost two decades in Central Australia as a mining consultant and camel-carrier of supplies from the railhead, Oodnadatta, to Northern Territory stations and mines. All his life Chewings had much contact with Aboriginals and he published this popular account of them. ID151313

MINT - a NEW copy. Illustrated with Black and White Photographs. (Discolouration to cover is actually part of the design) 341 pages During the life of the Port Phillip Aboriginal Protectorate from 1839 until late 1849 some 35 children were associated with the Protectorate. In this work we hear the voice of Protectorate children - the authors bring them out of the shadows of their fathers and allow them to appear as influential actors in their own right, with their own motivations, goals, ideas, and relationships with Aboriginal people. Detailed biographical entries, where possible, are included on every Protectorate child and on their spouses. For the first time, the reminiscences of William Jackson Thomas and Albert Le Souëf are published in their entirety ID290556
