Journal Of Annie Baxter Dawbin 1858-1868

Author: Lucy Frost



Annie wrote her hopes into the journal in which, as a flamboyant woman of decided opinions and considerable charms, she had been chronicling her version of British settlement in Australia since 1834. Thirty-two volumes of the handwritten journal survive, a remarkable achievement unmatched in colonial Australian letters. Only extracts from the journal have previously been published. The present volume presents the full text of its most vital period, 1858-68, together with full annotation, biographical notes, maps, and historical and editorial introduction.
