Small 8vo. viii, 124pp. Rebound, not recently, in quarter blue morocco and patterned papered boards, without the original stiff wrappers, spine title in gilt. Heavy offsetting on the free endpapers, small brown mark on the top corners of the last few leaves, otherwise a very good clean copy. ***Ferguson 14764; Wilson, Collecting Old Tasmanian Books, pp38-9. The author, retired civil servant Charles George Henry Furlong, emigrated to Tasmania in 1873 and settled in Myrtle Bank in the north-east. He gives a lively account of the voyage and of bush farming, mistakes and all, to serve as a guide for those who might choose to follow his example. A supplementary chapter of 4pp deals with the nearby (to Myrtle Bank) and newly-discovered Lisle goldfield, with some mention too of the richer Beaconsfield mine.
