A Black Sheep: Book Review



Publication Details

Brown, M. (2005). A Black Sheep: Book Review. Margin: Monash Australiana Research Group informal notes, (65), 36-39.


The difficulty of accessing literary works from 19th Century Australia has meant that the tapestry of artistic output produced for the periodical press has almost disappeared from view. Even those texts that achieved publication in book form are rarely reprinted. It is then a delight to have access to a scholarly edition of a colonial text.

Originally serialised in the Melbourne Age from 7 July 1888 to 5 January 1889 A Black Sheep by Ada Cambridge now appears as the last of the eight volume Colonial Text Series.
