Terre Napoléon; a history of French explorations and projects in Australia by Ernest Scott( )

26 editions published between 1910 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ernest Scott (1867-1939) emigrated to Australia in 1892, settling in Melbourne where he worked as a journalist. In 1913 he was appointed Professor of History at the University of Melbourne. This volume, first published in 1910, discusses the aims and outcome of the survey of the south Australian coast performed by Nicholas Baudin's French expedition between 1800 and 1804, and established Scott's reputation as a historian. Scott traces the path of Baudin's expedition along the then unexplored south coast of Australia, estimating the amount of original surveying performed by the expedition to address the accusation that the French expedition plagiarised British surveys of the same coastline. Scott also discusses the origins of the expedition to investigate possible political motivations behind the survey. This detailed and meticulously researched volume presents a valuable revised view of Baudin's expedition

The life of Captain Matthew Flinders, R.N by Ernest Scott( Book )

19 editions published between 1914 and 2011 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Matthew Flinders (1774-1814) joined the Royal Navy at fifteen, later claiming to have been inspired by Robinson Crusoe. He served under William Bligh, and charted the Bass Strait in 1798. In 1801 he was commissioned to chart 'New Holland', and so became the first to circumnavigate the island he referred to as Australia. After being shipwrecked on the Barrier Reef and imprisoned for six years on Mauritius on suspicion of spying, he returned to England in 1810 and began work on A Voyage to Terra Australis. He died the day after his book and maps were published. This biography, published in 1914 to mark the centenary of his death, was the first comprehensive study of this central figure of Australian maritime exploration. The leading Australian historian Ernest Scott (1868-1939) based his account on material held in private collections in France as well as on documents deposited in Australian libraries

History of Australian land settlement, 1788-1920 by Stephen H Roberts( Book )

4 editions published in 1924 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic in Australian academic literature is reissued as a historical document in the form in which it first appeared and in which it has been known and used since first published in 1924. Land settlement was a critical issue in Australian history; there is nothing quite like it in the history of any other country. Within one hundred years from the first settlement of the continent, following in the wake of the exploreres, pioneer squatters with their flocks and herds had conquered the vast distances. Most of the three million square miles was covered by some form of settlement posing uniques and challenging problems for government and administration. Sir Stephen has traced the history of Australian land settlement from the earliest administration of land grants through to the development of soldier settlement schemes and closer settlement in the twentieth century. Although it is forty-four years sine this book was first published it still remains on of the most authoritatice and comprehensive work in the field. (Back cover)
