One of the most celebrated and prolific authors of the Victorian
era, Anthony Trollope (1815-82) was also an enthusiastic traveller.
This two-volume work recounts his two-year journey across Britain's
colonies in the Antipodes. First published in 1873, it celebrates
the success of British colonisation, but also considers with
pragmatic foresight the inevitable unification of the Australian
territories and their desire for greater independence. Volume 1
covers Trollope's travels through Queensland, New South Wales and
Victoria. Each section addresses the history and governance of the
relevant state, assessing also the current condition of the
region's institutions, people and resources. In the process,
Trollope informs his reader about everything from the temperament
of Aboriginal Australians to the troubles of travelling by
steamboat. North America (1862), his account of the continent
during the American Civil War, and his An Autobiography (1883) are
also reissued in this series.
