A valuable document on Christian interaction (sometimes difficult) with the indigenous people. "The materials at my command were far from being so full as I could have desired, and residence on a remote island, with unfrequent communication, has occasioned considerable delay in collecting them and completing the work. I have endeavoured to let her tell the story of her life and work in her own letters and journals. Sometimes an explanatory note is appended, or passages from letters of different date are inserted, where the same subject is referred to, but in every case this has been indicated".

Rocky Section: An Australian Romance.

  Hardback octavo, very good condition, pictorial tan cloth cover (lightly marked), black & white plates (including frontispiece), new endpapers, pages lightly toned (notably last page), minor edgewear, rubber bookshop stamp title page. 188 pp. An historical romance set in rural Australia. This novel originally appeared as a serial in "Steele Rudd's Magazine". The author's name is also Sydney Partridge in some other novels, and is a pseudonym for Kate Margaret Partridge (1871 - 1953), who wrote novels jointly with another writer. Contains all four plates (rarely found). Review: "This is an Australian love story pure and simple. A young Queenslander falls in love with a fascinating girl from town but is jilted in favour of a titled man with money. He becomes a misogynist of the deepest dye, and buries himself in a veritable wilderness called Rocky Section Ñ miles from anywhere. One day he discovers a girl near his place who has evidently lost her way and fainted from sheer exhaustion. He takes her to his hut and revives her, only to find that she has lost her memory and cannot tell where she comes from. He hates women with a bitter hatred, but is on the horns of a dilemma. What happens? "The way out" is most interesting, but you must read it for yourself."

Nutmeg and pepper drove this wealthy Dutch merchant to try to break the monopoly on trade routes to the East Indies, and inspired him to forge a new route to the lucrative spice sources via the southern tip of South America. He was influenced by the famous voyage of de Quiros, the Portuguese navigator who believed he had reached Terra Australis, the great southland. The expedition had dual goals: to chart a new course to the Pacific, and to find the great southern continent.
