About this book

From the 1790s the novelty of things Australian inspired in British colonists `a rage for curiosity'. This fascinating analysis of early colonial art documents the `new Britannia' through its own evidence - images, artefacts, letters and diaries - collected, preserved and now presented, 200 years on.
