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.
