About This Item

Adelaide: William Kyffin Thomas, Printer [for The Author], 1874. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Adelaide, William Kyffin Thomas, Printer [for The Author], 1874. Octavo, 53 pages. Flush-cut quarter green cloth and yellow papered boards, with the full title page details repeated on the front cover; covers slightly rubbed at the extremities and lightly marked; front flyleaf removed; an excellent copy. 'These papers are written solely for private distribution amongst relatives and special friends; and, as my family is rather numerous and dispersed, the necessity arises of having them printed'. This copy is inscribed on the verso of the title page to 'Charlotte de S. Dutton with kind regards' and signed by the author. MacDermott, an 1829 pioneer of Western Australia before settling in South Australia in 1846, died in 1877. The provenance is most interesting: Charlotte de S. Dutton was the widow of William Hampden Dutton (1805-1849); her mother's maiden name was Da Silva. In 1849, William's brother Francis Stacker Dutton (1818-1877) married MacDermott's daughter Caroline. The Duttons and their pastoral property, Anlaby, were household names in South Australia for generations; to put them into context, 'While working at Anlaby in 1842 Francis had discovered with Captain Charles Bagot the Kapunda copper mine' (Australian Dictionary of Biography).
