Bi-centenary of publication
To celebrate, Hordern House has published in full an important eyewitness account of the fate of the Flinders expedition originally written in 1806. As is discussed in the introduction and notes, this anonymously published Narrative was almost completely overlooked for more than two centuries, but is now proven to have been written by one of Flinders' officers, Surgeon's Mate Robert Purdie.
This discovery is particularly significant as the Narrative is the only major published account to be written by a veteran of the expedition besides Flinders' own Voyage.
First Edition Superman for Sale
An expert has said that the book looks and feels like it just came off the newsstand. The colours are seemingly “deep and rich and the quality of the white pages is amazing for a comic that is 76 years old."
A copy of the book that was not as well-preserved sold for $2.1 million in 2011. The book is currently owned by a collector who is putting it up for auction without a reserve price. He is expected to donate a portion of the proceeds to charity.
Morgan Library & Museum
