Smithton, TAS: Jamala Press. 186 pp. Paperback octavo, very good condition, no flyleaf or title page as issued, black & white photos, front hinge slightly split (pages firm), minor edgewear corners & top spine. From the author's notes: The events that took place in the life of David Howie are historical fact, and appropriate record details are quoted in the bibliography. There is no evidence that Howie left any diaries, so some speculation and embellishment has been necessary to reconstruct his story where no records exist. An insight into David Howie's immediate family in Fifeshire where he was born, has been well researched. He became a household name in Australia in 1845. The research over many years in England, Scotland and Australia tells the story of a man who became a legend in his adopted country. The story is one of crime, passion, wrecked ships, attempted murder, sealers, pirates, Aborigines, graft and incredible bravery. He rescued the survivors of the Cataraqui wreck on King Island, Australia's worst sea tragedy on record. He was awarded the title of Straits Constable by the government of the day in order to police the islands of Bass Strait. ISBN: 1876913088. Our Book No: 29603. $35 AUD.

Edited by Anthony Payne." Includes a colour facsimile of the original letter in the centre pages. The version of the Columbus Letter that London bookseller Bernard Quaritch bought in 1890 was the most valuable item of printed Americana to ever appear on the market. No other copy of this, the earliest edition - a folio printed in Spanish at Barcelona in 1493 - is known. Quaritch and his assistant Michael Kerney originally published "The Spanish Letter of Columbus" in 1981 (now reprinted), being the first authoritative study of the document. But, as Felipe Fernández-Armesto recounts in his introduction (new to this reprint), it nearly got dismissed as a forgery, in era of many forgeries. Quaritch's Letter did contain some errors, most of which were the result of assumptions common at the time or deficiencies of knowledge unremedied until later, but did its job effectively. It demonstrated, correctly, that the folio in question was printed at Barcelona in 1493 and that all other known editions of the Columbus Letter followed it. This was a service to his firm and to the Lenox Library (now part of the New York Public Library), which purchased the item.

The Japanese bombing raid on Darwin, on 19 February 1942, was the first wartime assault on Australian soil. The Japanese struck with the same carrier-borne force that devastated Pearl Harbor only ten weeks earlier. There was a difference: more bombs fell on Darwin, more civilians were killed, and more ships were sunk. The people of Darwin abandoned their town, leaving it to looters, a few anti-aircraft batteries, and a handful of dogged defenders with single-shot rifles. Yet the story has remained in the shadows. Drawing on long-hidden documents and first-person accounts, Grose tells what really happened. There was much to be proud of in Darwin that day: courage, mateship, determination and improvisation. But the dark side of the story involves looting, desertion and a calamitous failure of leadership. (1 of 2 available copies.). ISBN: 9781741756432. Our Book No: 15138. $14 AUD.

London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson. 257 pp. Hardback octavo, dustjacket, very good plus condition (in very good plus dustjacket). Novel based on the mutiny on the Bounty that weaves facts with fiction. At dawn on 27 April 1789 Fletcher Christian, master's mate on the HMS Bounty, took a coconut to quench his thirst from the supply on the quarterdeck. But the consequences followed: mutiny; Captain Bligh's navigation 3000 miles across the Pacific in an open boat in violent weather without maps or supplies and with starving men; the colonising of Pitcairn Island; the shipwreck on the Great Barrier Reef of HMS Pandora sent to capture the mutineers; and, two hundred years later, the seduction of the narrator in a rudderless yacht on stormy seas. This singular tale by a Whitbread Prize-winning writer connects the famous mutiny on the Bounty in the Pacific Ocean in 1789 to the plight of the islanders of Pitcairn now. Its conceptual core is chaos theory: how a small chance thing, the taking of a coconut by Fletcher Christian from William Bligh's stores on the ship, had dramatic ramifications that continue today.
