171 Convict Discipline and Transportation: GREAT BRITAIN - Parliament - New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land. Further Correspondence on the subject of Convict Discipline and Transportation, February & August 1855 and March & August 1857 [four parts in three].
London Printed by W. Clowes and Sons, for Her Majesty's Stationery Office 1855& 1857 
Four papers in three volumes, foolscap folio, uniformly bound in half brown calf and cloth sides, spine title labels; ink stamp of the Law Society of the United Kingdom on the title page and final blank page of the second volume. The PAPERS are thus: [1] In continuation of Papers presented May 1854. Presented to both Houses of Parliament by Command of Her Majesty February 1855 (xii, 222pp). [2] In continuation of Papers presented February 1855. Presented to both Houses of Parliament by Command of Her Majesty August 1855 (viii, 164pp). [3] In continuation of Papers presented 2 June 1856. Presented to both Houses of Parliament by Command of Her Majesty 21 March 1857 (viii, 208pp). [4] In continuation of Papers presented 21 March 1857. Presented to both Houses of Parliament by Command of Her Majesty 25 August 1857 (vi, 100pp). BUT NOTE that the binder has misplaced all but the preliminaries of the August 1855 paper - [2] above - in the third volume of this set, where they follow the August 1857 paper. The preliminaries are placed at the end of the first volume. The paper is a little yellowed and some creasing of corners on a few leaves; the first and last leaves of paper [4] have been professionally repaired. The bindings are a trifle rubbed at the extremities, but in nice bright condition. A very good complete set, albeit with the misplacement of the second paper. *** The material overwhelming concerns VDL/Tasmania and Western Australia, but with some relating to NSW, Victoria and South Australia. From each paper: [1] VDL pp1-87, WA pp97-222; [2] Tasmania pp1-67, WA pp87-167; [3] WA pp1-144, Tasmania pp145-83; [4] WA pp1-86, Tasmania pp87-92.
