Field sports &c. &c. of the native inhabitants of New South Wales 1813

Published in London by Edward Orme in 1813 and purportedly written and illustrated by John Heaviside Clark, this book was the first to be published about Aboriginal life and customs. It is unknown whose work the plates are based on but it seems unlikely that Clark ever visited Australia. The plates and essay were also included in later works like Foreign Field Sports, Fisheries, Sporting Anecdotes.
