Description

This is a complete scan of Robert Dale's 1834 pamphlet Descriptive account of the panoramic view, &c. of King George's Sound, and the adjacent country. This pamphlet was intended to accompany the painting Panoramic View of King George's Sound, Part of the Colony of Swan River by Robert Havell (1769-1832) from sketches by Dale. It was sold as a memento of parties thrown by Thomas Pettigrew during which the panorama and the head of Yagan were displayed.

Source For the most part, this is a cleaned up version of the National Library of Australia's scan, available online at http://nla.gov.au/nla.aus-f1761. The photocopy does not, however, contain the image of Yagan's head that here comprises the second page. That image was obtained from the Battye library website, specifically at http://www.slwa.wa.gov.au/images/misc12/012665d.jpg, and inserted as the frontispiece to this work on the authority of numerous sources.
Author Robert Dale (1810–1856)
