Descripción

This "Convict's Story 1803-11" is based on the journal and letters of John Grant, who was transported from England to the Australian colony for life, his sentance arising from a crime of passion. Grant was basically an educated, sensative and respectable young man, thwarted in love. Late in 1811 he was pardoned and returned to England. His extensive letters and records of his transportation and experiences in Australia, including a spell in the Hell-hole of Norfolk Island prison, were disovered by the author while he was researching the history of a long established London bank, where they had lain unopened for about 150 years. Thus the origins of the book are as extraordinary as is the story the documents revealed. 222 pages including appendices, index , eight b/w plates (two being documents). Black hard covers with gilt spine titles VG+ with small dent lower front edge adjacent spine, ink name FFEP, text block otherwise excellent. Colour art DJ VG+. N° de ref. de la librería 002947
