[1843.]
Unique letterpress contract completed with ink mss. Sheet 520 x 490mm (20½ x 16½"). Creases, wear to edges.
Very early West Australiana item. The 'Original' and 'Duplicate Original' of a land ownership contract, relating to the new settlement of Australind in Western Australia, the third part, the 'Counterpart', was retained by the company. The colony was set up with the intention of breeding horses for the army in India (thus the name Austral-Ind), and plots were sold to investors and prospective settlers in London and elsewhere. By 1841 there were 440 settlers but that year Methodist minister Rev. John Smithies wrote to the Wesleyan Missionary Society in London, ''If any of your friends are thinking of Austral-Ind as a point of emigration tell them to Stop. It is one of the greatest puffs that there has been for some time. I should be sorry if any of our Methodist friends or others should be so deluded as to embark for such a place''. Poor soil, summer droughts and winter deluges meant that by 1875 the settlement was abandoned.

Lithograph. 275 x 425mm (10¾ x 16¾"). Trimmed, losing explanatory title, split in centre fold repaired, laid on archival tissue.
An allegorical figure of Adelaide thanks Hercules (holding a theatrical mask over his face), for cleaning out the ghostly figures of 'Fever', 'Contagion' and 'Malaria', referring to 'Mr Clark' and asks if he can help to get rid of another nuisance. A bearded man, possibly journalist John Howward Clark (1830-78), sits to one side. Unfortunately a second, explanatory title has been lost. An extremely rare satire from the first issue of the 'Rattlesnake or Adelaide Punch', a fortnightly Australian humorous magazine. It survived for only a few issues, before failing and being taken over by the printers, Scrymgour and Sons. Renamed 'The Adelaide Punch', it lasted until 1884.
