Title: The Emigrant's Home; or, How to Settle. A Story of Australian Life for All Classes at Home and in the Colonies
Author: William H. G. Kingston
Publisher: Groombridge & Sons (London)
Printing Year: 1856

Condition/Details: Bound in blue cloth with gilt embossing to spine, this antique volume is a rare literary work concerning itself with the question of emigration to Australia. William Henry Giles Kingston (1814-1880), was an English writer of adventure/discovery and travel fiction, who was greatly involved in matters relating to colonialism. He published various papers, including "The Colonist," "Colonial Magazine," and "East India Review." Kingston was honorary secretary of a colonization society, wrote in 1848 "Some Suggestions for a System of General Emigration," lectured on colonization in 1849, published a manual for colonists, "How to Emigrate" in 1850, and visited the western highlands on behalf of the emigration commissioners. He was afterwards a zealous volunteer and worked actively for the improvement of the condition of seamen. The author writes in the preface to this novel: "My work 'How to Emigrate' received such flattering encouragement from the public, that I have been induced to write another Tale of a similar character, although not exactly a sequel to the former. Circumstances have much altered since that was composed. Then it was deemed necessary to encourage emigration, now it is perhaps important to restrain the ardour of would-be emigrants. I have therefore, in the following work, confined myself to two leading objects. I have pointed out the characters who are unfit to succeed as colonists, and I have endeavoured to explain to those who do go forth, the only sure means of succeeding in the new career they have chosen."

The volume shows external age/wear, with spine detaching from the top and edges. Corners of boards are bumped. Hinges are cracked. Endpapers have writing and scribbling in pencil and crayon. Text block is intact with unmarked, age-toned pages that show occasional spotting. A few pages have staining to edges of margins. The book measures approximately 4" x 6" and contains 238 pages plus 2 pages of publisher's advertisements. Shipping cost (within the U.S.) for this lot will be: $4.50
