Description
 
The Historical Records of New South Wales are published with the object of affording the fullest information obtainable concerning the foundation, progress, and government of the mother colony of Australia.

The set of seven volumes covering the period 1762 to 1811 tell the story of exploration, convicts, the administrators, the military, and others associated with the colony of New South Wales during the early days. The extensive collection of journals, logs, personal and official letters, the despatches, State papers, maps and illustrations provide an interesting insight into all facets of the colony.

Spirituous liquors, having found their way into the colony in considerable quantities, occasion much idleness amongst many of the settlers; but I must confess have nevertheless some advantages. Much work will be done by labourers, artificers, and others for a small reward in this article, and (without any injury to health) which money could not purchase.
[Governor Hunter to The Duke of Portland, 20 August 1796]
