An historical journal of the transactions at Port Jackson and Norfolk island : with the discoveries which have been made in New South Wales and in the Southern ocean, since the publication of Phillip's voyage, compiled from the official papers ; including the journals of Governors Phillip and King, and of Lieut. Ball ; and the voyages from the first sailing of the Sirius in 1787, to the return of that ship's company to England in 1792. by John Hunter( Book )

1 edition published in 1793 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first edition of Hunter's important journal of the first years of settlement at Sydney. As with Governor Phillip's account, this was published by Stockdale, and continues that publisher's monopoly on the "official" accounts of the colony.Hunter was an experienced sea captain and the most dedicated navigator of the First Fleeters, and his book is in effect the first pilot for Australian waters and a significant companion to Cook, in particular, whose book he frequently consulted. As might be expected, therefore, the maps are excellent. Furthermore, it is the last book to include writings by Phillip as it prints his dispatches to the end of 1791; as the first work to publish anything by Philip Gidley King it is also the first account of Norfolk Island.Second captain of HMS Sirius under Phillip for the voyage to Botany Bay, Hunter became actively engaged in surveying and exploration in New South Wales, and only left for England in late 1791 after the loss of the Sirius at Norfolk Island while under his command. He spent the next few years in England, where he prepared his journals for publication. Hunter gives an excellent account of many activities, particularly exploration and the settlement at Norfolk Island (based on King's papers), which are treated more cursorily by the other First Fleet chroniclers. The engraved plates and maps, many of the latter from original cartography by Hunter, Dawes and Bradley, are very fine. The plates include the well-known "View of the Settlement at Sydney Cove, Port Jackson, 20th August 1788" (the first published engraving of Sydney) and P.G. King's "A Family of New South Wales", engraved by William Blake
