I can remember my surprise even now although it was thirty years ago that I first read G.W. Rusden's threevolume History of Australia published in 1883. At the time I was beginning to work on the history of Aboriginal-European relations and was reading widely among the literature of the various Australian colonies in the hope that I could develop some understanding of the development of an historiographical tradition prior to the twentieth century.
