AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A critical account of Hubert de Castella's book on mid-nineteenth century Victoria and its history, written to correct the negative image of Melbourne presented in Céleste de Chabrillan's Les Voleurs d'or and other contemporary books. When it comes to detail, Castella's writing is marred by factual inaccuracy and even his description of his personal experiences, although valuable and interesting in itself, tends to be unreliable.'
