First edition of the memoirs of Sir Edward Nicholas Coventry Braddon,
KCMG (1829-1904) following his departure from India, where he had
been a government magistrate. Includes account of his experiences in
the Santhal rebellion and in the Mutiny as magistrate in the Santhal co.
In 1878 he moved to Tasmania, becoming a member of Parliament in
1879. He later represented Tasmania on the Federal Council, the
predecessor to the Constitutional Conventions of the 1890's. He
was a member of the first Australian parliament in the House of
Representatives (at the age of 72 the oldest member ever elected up
to that time). He ultimately became the Premier of Tasmania, a post held
from 1894 to 1899. Braddon was the brother of the novelist Mary Elizabeth
Braddon. Both the suburb of Braddon in the Australian Capital Territory and
the Division of Braddon in Tasmania are named after him.
