Details

Traces the origins of the Australian Museum and its 150 year’s history. A story of struggle between proponents of opposing views – gentlemen collectors against salaried professionals, museum administrators against government bureaucrats, trustees against directors – often tragically resolved. Traces the evolution of an institution that became much more than the sum of its parts and is now world renown for its collections, research, displays and educational activities. The author writing with humour and understatement provides a most interesting and enjoyable read. Hard cover, ii + 173pgs, well illustrated, appendices, references, index. Near new. $5-00 HawkReg; Local Hist .
