Book Description Angus & Robertson, Sydney, 1982. 1st ed.. Hardback small octavo, dustjacket, very good condition (in very good dustjacket), black & white photos, minor edgewear jacket (lightly rubbed, minor foxing reverse side), cloth corners little rubbed, non-author written dedication. 193 pp. This is the biography of John Bede Polding who was a Benedictine priest in England. He was consecrated Bishop in 1834 and appointed to New Holland. His long-held dream of ministering in the Antipodes (which had earned him the name "The Bishop of Botany Bay") had finally come true, and after a six-month voyage, he arrived in Sydney on 13 September, 1835. Sister Frances O'Donoghue's carefully researched biography of the life and times of Polding is an absorbing story of the genesis of the Roman Catholic Church in Australia, and a valuable addition to our social history.
