MINT - a NEW copy. Illustrated with Black and White plates. 324 pages John Lewes Pedder (1793 - 1859) served as Chief Justice of Van Diemen's Land from 1824 to 1854, and his long career provides a unique window into the colonial world - through crime, politics, and frontier collision with the island's Aboriginal people. Where Pedder's critics condemn a subservient official who hindered reform and sent hundreds to the gallows, contemporaries lauded an upright judge, courteous gentleman, liberal friend and accomplished scholar. This new biography offers a sensitive account of a complex and surprisingly sympathetic man, who played a significant role in Tasmanian history.
