Octavo Size [approx 15.5 x 22.8cm]. MINT - a NEW copy. Illustrated with colour and black & white plates. 366 pages Alias Blind Larry is a convict story, an adventure story, a colonial story, a Jewish story, a theatrical story. A story of cruelty, resilience, cheek and humour, and it is (mostly) true. James Laurence was transported to NSW in 1814 for jewel theft. He served time in every penal settlement in NSW, singing and thieving when he was free. He wrote his memoir on Norfolk Island in 1842, just before his release. Then even more adventures followed. A fascinating piece of history, untold until now
