Phelps, Esq. , annotated ’920 acres, not including the lagoon of Shannon Harbour – about 300 more’. The second consists of 16 ink and 48 watercolour sketches of Aboriginal scenes, animals, snakes, birds and marine life (largely Australian), three signed and two dated.

Together with the record of Phelps’ land grant at Broulee in Baker’s Australian ...
