This book, published at the end of the 19th century, contains a collection of articles written by the author for 'Calvert's West Australian Mining Register' and its successor 'West Australian Review' between 1893 and 1894, when the Australian Gold Rush was well under way. It offers an illuminating glimpse into the thoughts of a mining professional, and the many questions arising from the exciting developments occurring at the time, and remains in print to this day. Scarce first edition in a very good original binding. 8vo. 7.25" x 5.0" x 0.50. [8pp.]/pp.168. Maroon cloth covered boards, with gilt titles to front board and spine. Title to front board: "Western Austalia And Its Welfare Albert F. Calvert Price". Smooth spine with slightly dulled gilt titles and library reference label to the base. Edges lightly rubbed and bumped. Original black endpapers. Old library label to verso of the front board: "Woolwich Public Libraries. Reference Department, Plumstead." Printed title-page. Library stamps to the verso including: "The Joseph Edwards Sociological Collection". Free-endpapers, Portrait frontis, and the last leaf of text, lightly toned. Otherwise clean English text throughout. A very good copy of this scarce publication.** "Albert Frederick Calvert (1872-1946), author, traveller and mining engineer, was born on 20 July 1872 at Kentish Town, Middlesex, England, son of John Calvert, mining engineer, and his wife Grace, née Easley. He was brought up principally by his grandfather John Calvert (1814-1897), a widely travelled mineralogist who claimed extensive gold discoveries in Australia in the 1840s. Initiated as a Freemason in 1893, he became something of an authority on Masonic history in later life, though his work is not now highly regarded. Depending on Masonic help in his last years, Calvert died of cerebro-vascular disease in the Archway Hospital, Islington, London, on 27 June 1946, survived by his wife and four sons." - See Australian Dictionary of Biography
