It is based entirely upon original contemporary sources and is fully documented and illustrated. It is the result of several years' exhaustive research in Australia and Great Britain, and is a critical examination of all extant original material. Much of this is here published for the first time. ...In addition to an account as complete as possible of Phillip's career, the book gives a detailed history of New South Wales during the first five years of its settlement; an intimate account of affairs at Norfolk island during the same period; a full description of Phillip's explorations and discoveries and of the extension of settlement; many sidelights upon the working of the penal system and upon the aborigines; studies of the men who accompanied the Governor to New South Wales and assisted in the foundation of the colony, and of his friends and associates in other spheres of activity." -from the dj.
