First edition. *William Lawson (1774-1850) accompanied Gregory Blaxland and William Charles Wentworth in 1813 on the first successful attempt to find a route across the Blue Mountains. 'The letters were mostly written to and from "Veteran Hall" (Lawson's home at Prospect) by Lawson himself, members of his family and his London agent. They make interesting references to Lawson's activities as a grower of sheep and wool, and to his path-finding journeys over much of the then unknown west and north-west of New South Wales' [Introduction].
