About This Item

Adelaide: Falie Project. 1985. Oblong Octavo Size [18x25cm approx]. Very Good condition in Very Good Dustjacket - now protected in a purpose-made plastic sleeve. Reinforced binding. Illustrated with Black and White & Colour Photographs as well as black and white maps and diagrams. Signed by both authors on the Title Page 114 pages. The Falie is a 46-metre (151 ft) ketch that traded for many years in Australian waters. Originally built in 1919 as the motor schooner collier Hollands Trouw, she was purchased by the Spencer's Gulf Transport Company, renamed, and used for coastal trading in South Australia. The vessel commissioned into the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) as HMAS Falie during World War II, serving first as an inspection vessel primarily patrolling the Port of Sydney, Australia, then as a stores ship. Returned to her owners in 1946, Falie was used to transport explosives around Australia before resuming the South Australian coastal trade to Kangaroo Island and on occasion carrying bulk Gypsum from Stenhouse Bay from 1968. She was retired in 1982, then purchased by the South Australian government for preservation. Robust, professional packaging and tracking provided for all parcels. . 1st Edition. Hardback.
