Description
 
'Australian Pioneers and Reminiscences' by Nehemiah Bartley, is an important work with reminiscences of Australians and life from 1849 to 1894. Having emigrated to Tasmania from London in 1849, Bartley then travelled Australia until 1854 when he settled in Queensland.

Having a keen eye for detail, Bartley recorded many fascinating facts and observations on all sorts of topics. From places he'd visited to news items of the day. From roads and droughts, to goldfields and chess. There are details of politicians, business and professional men, 'comely dames', bullockies and squatters and numerous others.

Nehemiah died suddenly in 1894 as he was compiling this book. John Knight took on the job of completing this work using Bartley's original notes and diaries, and published it in 1896.

Complete with 150 photographs, most of them portraits, and an index, this book makes for great reading for those with and interest in Australia's early history.

High quality scanned images of the whole of the original book. This CD has been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
