This work contains the EARLIEST COLOURED PLATES OF SYDNEY. George Barrington was a notorious London pickpocket who was sentenced to transportation with the Third Fleet in 1791. First published in 1802 the Account of a Voyage … was written to meet the demand for books relating to New South Wales. The fact that Barrington went on to become the Police Chief for Parramatta only enhanced his reputation. Refer Abbey 565 & 606; Ferguson 486-7.
