About the Authors
  • One of the most celebrated and prolific authors of the Victorian era, Anthony Trollope (1815–82) was also an enthusiastic traveller. This two-volume work recounts his two-year journey across Britain's colonies in the Antipodes. First published in 1873, it celebrates the success of British colonisation, but also considers with pragmatic foresight the inevitable unification of the Australian territories and their desire for greater independence. Arranged in the order of Trollope's journey, Volume 1 covers his travels through eastern Australia, while Volume 2 describes his passage westwards and to the south, ending with his tour of New Zealand. Both are supplemented with maps (the full-colour versions of these can be accessed online). North America (1862), Trollope's account of the continent during the American Civil War, and his An Autobiography (1883) are also reissued in this series.
