a| "For private circulation".
a| National Library of Australia's SR copy came from the Moulden family, which suggests the author may be a friend or member of that family, possibly also the author of a similar anonymous pamphlet published "For private circulation" titled "Journal of a canoe trip 200 miles down the River Murray, Christmas, 1872" (Ferguson 11012), which although it has been attributed to Bayfield Moulden (1854-1933), was actually written by the companion of "a friend I shall call 'Bay.'". 5| ANL
a| "A close-printed account of a journey undertaken after departure from Glenelg, South Australia, on 8 December 1883 (see p. 3), in the steam launch 'Mermaid', by an Australian colonial who joined RMS ‘I ---- s [Indus]’, ‘in search of health’. Some of the material had been used in a series of ‘lecturettes’, but the book was ‘For Private Circulation’. An early example of Australian middle-class tourism, perhaps the first such documented account of travel by an Australian tourist in India, unknown to Westrip and Holroyde ‘Colonial Cousins: A Surprising History of Connections between India and Australia’. An Old Pioneer feels well enough established to venture not ‘Home’ or on a European tour but to our nearer neighbours, where he manifests a definite ‘Australian’ consciousness." --Catalogue from Cathy Chua, July 2018.
