Excellent 'primer' for students and anyone wanting  a colourful overview of the individuals and expeditions who uncovered Australia. Terrific presentation, full of information, marred by a minor error or two, but worth the modest price for Parish's trademark quality imagery.

 Favenc FC 300 Explorers of Australia
Favenc, Ernest
Senate (Tiger Books International), London, 1998 edition

(First pub. Whitcombe & Tombs, Melbourne, Christchurch, London, 1908)

Explorer John Forrest, in his Introduction to the 1908 edition, is kinder in his paragraph given over to Leichhardt than the author in the 14 pages he allocated to the missing Prussian at the end of Part Eight “The Early Forties”. Leichhardt’s shortcomings are to the fore, with grudging concessions to his few accomplishments. As a work compiled over a century ago, however, and within the first few decades of Leichhardt’s disappearance, this book is written in the tenor of the times, bringing the feel of the last of the 19th century to light. Recommended for context.
