Admiral Phillip

Admiral Phillip: The founding of New South Wales by Louis Becke and Walter Jeffery. Builders of Great Britain series. T. Fisher Unwin, London, 1899.

A narrative of the founding of the colony of New South Wales more than a biography because of the scarcity of information about Phillip, its first governor.
