A fine clean copy ISBN 0908528299 ***Includes the full text of Jorgenson's hitherto unpublished account of the 'revolution' in Iceland in 1809, in which he was briefly installed as 'Protector' - and which was the source of the name by which he is known to Tasmania history - the 'Convict King'. Jorgenson's adventurous life - and his often unreliable accounting of it - are examined in meticulous detail.
