Ships' Deserters 1852-1900

£50.00

Product description

Published in 1986 by the Library of Australian History.

Ships' Deserters 1852-1900 including Stragglers, Strays and Absentees from H. M. Ships, by Jim Melton.

From the blurb: "This volume contains approximately 10,000 notified desertions and other absences by seamen during the period 1852 to 1900 inclusive. These notices were inserted in the New South Wales Government Gazette (1852-1962) and the New South Wales Police Gazette - which took over the tole of reporting desertions, early in 1862. Most of the men and youths named were straight forward deserters though a small minority were variously described as Stragglers, Strays, and Absentees, or as being Absent Without Leave."

Very good condition paperback. The cover is very lightly worn at the edges, and is lightly creased.
