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."

Scoresby (1789 - 1857), the noted Arctic explorer, later became the first navigator to investigate the changes in magnetism in an iron ship as it sailed from the northern to southern hemisphere. He was appointed in 1855 to the Liverpool Compass Committee which investigated the deviation of the compass in wooden and iron ships in response to losses at sea caused by compass errors. In 1856 he and his his wife sailed on the maiden voyage of the "Royal Charter" to Australia and back, to make systematic observations on the magnetism of iron ships. He was awarded an honorary MA degree at Melbourne University during this visit. His pleasing results were published in 1859 after his death. (Ferguson 15510. Publisher's catalogue at rear.
