- "CD seconds" or "spares" are perfectly good data wise, but have been put aside due to:
- faulty label printing, e.g. off colour or misaligned. A few have been manually labelled or corrected
over-produced initially, so offered as "spares" to clear
They are all offered at 60% to 90% discount (from the normal price). They will be supplied in clear CD sleeves, rather than the normal CD cases. In many cases they are the last available, i.e. they won't be available, even at full price, when sold out.
This book tells the early history of Port Mackay, from early expeditions to the area through its settlement to 1866.
It includes journals from Leichhardt's and Captain Mackay's expeditions, giving comprehensive detail of the area at discovery and including many accounts of interesting, risky and difficult experiences, as well as a detailed account of the settlement of the area and events leading up to the settlement.
Also included are appendices on ships that went up the coast, the ascent of Mount Dalrymple, the Aborigines of Mackay and notes on natural history and sport.
The accounts recorded in this book are personal, include great detail and are interesting to read. This book is of use to anyone interested in the History of the area.
