The Collection includes a selection of original books relating to the period.  Where possible these are first editions, many still in original boards and uncut.  A focus has been on Association Copies – books that are signed by the author or have special significance such as Philip Parker King’s personal copy of Dampier’s Voyages, annotated by King as he followed Dampier’s voyage along the Australian coast.
