Thanks Joan. What I am working on is the print out sent by Irmtraud/Kerry, so I can't download it. It is virtually the same as yours, up to the end of 'By and By'. Then it has Other Works Include The Battle of Mordialloc, or, How We Lost Australia
Melbourne: Samuel Mullen, 1888. Anecdotes from Australian history.
Published anonymously, but attributed in Ferguson to Maitland.
Comment/s, etc - as in your download
So it is a bit of a mystery where the two sentences came from:
'Anecdotes from Australian history. Published anonymously, but attributed in Ferguson to Maitland'.
Perhaps Irmtraud can throw some light on it.
Your weekend sounds interesting - I hope you enjoy it.
TerryHi Terry I am sorry you have had issues with this author - my involvement was peripheral. As you can see from the bio source notes - yes I was aware it was in Miller - the maintenance notes on the record for the item in question I have altered to read is in Miller. I have made it fiction unclassified and removed Maitland as the author. I think you must be working from a different document to the one that is downloading from AustLit in the BAL download. This is what my download looks like from AustLit for Edward Maitland, bearing in mind I have just removed "The Battle of Mordialloc" from his record. MAITLAND, EDWARD (m) b. 27 October 1824 Ipswich, Suffolk, England; d. 2 October 1897 Tonbridge, Kent, England. FICTION The Pilgrim and the Shrine, or, Passages From the Life and Correspondence of Herbert Ainslie, B. A. Cantab London: Tinsley, 1868. The character, Captain Travers is based on the explorer, W. H. Hovell, and Mary is based on Mary Margaret Woolley (nee Turner), wife of Professor John Woolley. Other imprint/s: UK - 2nd ed. with corrections and additions.

London: Richard Bentley, 1875. ns@BL COMMENT/S: Maitland spent eight years in Australia from 1850 and the above listed works draw on his experiences in Australia. PAPERS HELD: Albinski 146. FURTHER INFORMATION: AustLit; ADB; ; Miller; OX. The BAL comment in AustLit does not say at all "The present BAL Comment reads that it is attributed to Maitland by Ferguson (6804)' And if you look at AustLit nowhere does it say that either. There is a note referring to the Ferguson no and a note on the work record saying Published anonymously but attributed by several libraries to Edward Maitland. I have amended the biog. Let me know if you would like any other changes made Terry. Just out of interest, could you send me a copy of the BAL download document that you are working on for this author. No not going to Straddie, however I am going for 3 days this w/e to the Outrigger at Salt in northern NSW. Cheers Joan www.austlit.edu.au ----- Original Message----- From: Terry O'Neill [mailto:Terry.ONeill@arts.monash.edu.au] Sent: Friday, 1 December 2006 9:57 AM To: Joan Keating Subject: Battle of Mordialloc Hi Joan. In my role as Associate Editor of BAL I am at present working through the print out of M, where I was surprised to find under Maitland, Edward "The Battle of Mordialloc", which is already in BAL (I:99). I sighted it at VSL and I can assure you it is fiction - it describes a Russian invasion of Australia - which of course is not historical, but pure fiction. I think you have might have had some input into the above title on AustLit, although it wasn't sighted by you. Contrary to the maintenance note in AustLit, it is listed in Miller (II: 635) and in M&M. "The present BAL Comment reads that it is attributed to Maitland by Ferguson (6804)'- this is not the case, at least in my copy of Ferguson. What I intend to do is to delete the item from the Maitland entry and include a note under his Comment/s that some sources indicate he might be the author of this work (and cross reference it to vol. 1 of BAL). In the meantime do you think you could arrange for the AustLit entry to be re-instated as anonymous fiction, though include a note about possible Maitland authorship, both in the record for the book and in the biographical sketch for Maitland. Sorry about all of this, but it would not have looked good to have it listed in vol. 1 as fiction and then in vol. 3 as Other Work by Maitland! Have a good weekend. Heading to Straddie? Terry
