1 Pepperall, R.A. Emigrant To Australia
London Latimer House 1948 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Good 
Silver title on blue cloth boards which are clean and unmarked with no wear but with a small amount of fading to spine head. Internally there is light foxing to closed edges and a touch to endpapers else clean, tight and unmarked. Dustjacket has some chipping, small closed tears, wear to edges and is not price clipped. After the First World War, just as after that of the Second World War, the economic situation in Great Britain was difficult. Thousands of young men, newly released from the armed forces anxious to launch themselves afresh, found themselves hampered and frustrated, and in desperation turned their thoughts to the Dominions overseas. The author was one of that generation, a professional soldier, yet now retired from the Indian Army, who emigrated to Australia in 1923. Of Australia and of farming he knew nothing, settling down to a life wholly strange to him. How did he fare? With what unexpected problems and difficulties did he have to cope? What lessons does his experience offer to those who would like to emigrate? A fascinating tale of an early emigrant and of farming in Australia.
