Secondhand. Very good condition. Minimal edgewear.
First published in two-volumes in 1814, this is the enthralling account of the circumnavigation of Australia, by the man who gave Australia its name.
Edited and introduced by Tim Flannery, Terra Australis is a vital step toward a new understanding of our own history. Flinders tells of meeting and communicating with Aborigines, of the scrub and wilderness. His descriptions of the difficulties that he and his sailors faced still bristle with energy and immediacy two hundred years later.
This edition includes the voyage Flinders made with George Bass to prove that Tasmania was an island.
