LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

South Melbourne: Oxford University Press Australia, 1991. XV, 619 pages, + five pages blank; notes, bibliography, index, seven appendices, original illustrated dustwrapper. Previous owner's name in ink on the verso of the half title page, otherwise in very good order. The spine section of the dustwrapper has faded slightly due to sunlight. This sequel to PORT PHILLIP GENTLEMEN, surveys Victoria's upper class and examines its composition, character and contradictions. Part two of the book constitutes a Who's Who of colonial society between 1850 and 1880. It contains over 2000 biographical entries of clubmen, landowners and gentlemen immigrants, with notes on their families, children and marriages. Varied in origin, achievement and fate, these columnists provided the breeding ground from which much of Victorian society for the next century emerged. With its mixture of the well-known, the briefly celebrated, the forgotten and the obscure, part two illustrates the workings of an important principle in colonial social history: the emergence and disappearance of individuals and families, and the brief tenure of position, land and fortune.This book weighs more than 1 Kg.
