    William Bradley’s journal is an unpublished manuscript. Australian copyright law changed in 2019
    to allow publication of thousands of such documents. The production of this ebook is a celebration
    of this change in the law which sees the liberation of numerous documents, which have languished
    in the stack areas of public libraries, so that they can be freely accessed.
    * An edited version of Bradley’s A Voyage to New South Wales, edited by Colin Choat, is also available.
    This ebook has modern spelling, better-formatted text and and other relevant images. — HTML
