Three Parliamentary reports relating to the annual revenue of New South Wales for 1835.

Sydney: E.H. Statham, York Street, 1835.

Three foolscap reports, with docket-titles,

A collection of three reports by the Auditor General on the finances of New South Wales, full of interesting notes on expenses in the colony, printed by the prolific Sydney based printer and newspaper publisher Edwyn Henry Statham. It is increasingly unusual to see these government papers as issued, rather than bound up in contemporary or later collections.

It is increasingly unusual to see these government papers as issued, rather than bound up in contemporary or later collections.

Issued separately, as here, Ferguson lists these three reports in a portmanteau entry for "Votes and Proceedings" of the New South Wales Legislative Council (2156; 4, 5, 6). The three reports are the "Abstract of the Revenue arising from Crown Lands… 1835"; "Abstract of the Revenue of the Colony of New South Wales (exclusively of the revenue arising from Crown Lands) and of its appropriation", chipped, 12 pp. and not the 14 called for by Ferguson; and "Statement of the Amount Appropriated by the Legislative Council, for the year 1835…", in which are listed totals for the money advanced towards assisted emigration (£1,120), and the impressive amount of £8043 for passage money for female emigrants (on the Duchess of Northumberland, Canton, Lochiel and Rachel.

Ferguson, 2156 (4, 5, 6).

Condition Report: Some mild water-staining, two reports are good clean copies, the third is chipped and lacks two pages called for in Ferguson's collation.
