North-West exploration : journal of expedition from DeGrey to Port Darwin by Alexander Forrest( Book )

5 editions published between 1879 and 1996 in English and French and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alexander Forrest, who served under his brother, John, on several expeditions, did his most memorable exploratory work in the north-west, especially on this 1879 expedition he led from the De Grey River to the Telegraph Line and Port Darwin. The eight-month expedition followed the Fitzroy River to the King Leopold Range. Finding this mountain range impenetrable they skirted around it to discover and name the Nicholson Plains, and later the Ord River. After reaching the Victoria River and the Telegraph Line, the party then struck out for Port Darwin. This was one of the most important expeditions undertaken in the north-west of the continent and was of considerable importance in opening up the interior. Forrests Journal is unusallyattractive for a government-printed expedition account, and is illustrated with early Perthprinted lithographs after sketches by Henry Charles Prinsep. Prinsep (1844-1922), who had studied art under George Frederick Watts in London, and later in Heidleberg and Dresden, as well as studying law at Oxford, emigrated to the Swan River Colony in 1866. He joined the Lands and Surveys Department as a draughtsman, later becoming head of the Mines Department and chief protector of the Aborigines. He was commissioned by the Lands Department to illustrate both Forrests Journal and Giless Australia Twice Traversed, published in 1889. Interesting though misleading is the credit Prinsep received in the introduction to Giless work, where he is named as Mr. Val Prinsep of Perth. Valentine (Val) Prinsep was Henrys more famous artist cousin, but was based in London
