Bibliography of the Reverend W.B. Clarke (1798-1878)


M. K. Organ


Throughout his lifetime, the Rev. W.B. Clarke was a prolific writer of letters and articles for publication on a variety of topics, including geology, meteorology, astronomy, natural history, zoology, theology, literature, Australian exploration, politics, and various miscellany. Previous bibliographies have listed approximately 150 works by Clarke, but mostly excluded his substantial collection of published writings which appeared in local newspapers and overseas journals. The present bibliography redresses these omissions, listing some 837 works, of which 545 are by Clarke. This revelation of the quantity, and variety, of his published work highlights the significant part he played in the promotion of science in colonial New South Wales. -from Author
