42. Driscoll, W. P. (1969). The Beginnings of the Wine Industry in the Hunter Valley (1st ed) [Newcastle History Monographs]. Newcastle, NSW: Newcastle Public Library / Newcastle and Hunter District Historical Society. 81 pp. Paperback trade, very good condition, stapled (little rusted), printed textured card covers, pages lightly toned, spine ends little scuffed, spine rubbed, minor edgewear. The Hunter Valley has produced wine since the earliest years of settlement. The first quantities of wine and the vine acreages were negligible, and even by 1850, the terminal date for this essay, these had not made the dramatic increases that occurred in the second half of the 19th century. However, large landholders with a few acres of vines were laying the foundations for the future. In view of the sketchy and inaccurate information on the early years, the essay is designed to tell, as accurately as possible, what happened. Secondly, this essay analyses the reasons for the growth of the industry to a stage where, by midcentury, it had become strong enough to survive the gold rush years (as the prerequisites for success had become established). The author won The Newcastle Public Library Local History Award with this essay in 1968. (No 5 in this series.). Our Book No: 30442. $50 AUD.

The Newcastle Public Library has acquired the Merewether Estate archives, dating from 1824 to 1961, covering the history of coalmining and land surface development in the areas of Merewether and Rothbury. There are private papers of Dr Mitchell, his son David Scott Mitchell, and son-in-law Edward Christopher Merewether. David Scott is well-known to the users of the Mitchell Library in Sydney, but his father is less well-known. Dr James Mitchell was a medical practitioner, landowner, company promoter, benefactor, and financier of the 19th century. His accumulation of wealth gave his son by inheritance the means to engage in book collecting and the philanthropy that subsequently helped found the Mitchell Library. In this fascinating pamphlet, Dr James Mitchell’s story is told from the early years (1792 - 1822) through to Wolfskehl and the Great Will Case (1865 -1869). The aim of this pamphlet is to raise interest into further research on Dr James Mitchell. (No 1 in this series.). Our Book No: 30438. $18 AUD.

The Browns had to leave as the mine was reserved by the crown to protect the investment of the Australian Agricultural Company in coalmining. However they continued to produce coal and in a few year moved to the Burwood Estate, close to newcastle, where they developed a new mine, and they became 'men of property', merchants, and shipowners.
