About this Item: William Heinemann Ltd., Melbourne Vic., 1971. Two volumes: octavo; hardcover, with silver gilt spine titling; 541pp. [237pp. & 304pp.]. Moderate wear; previous owner's name; offsetting to endpapers and pastedowns in both volumes; insect damage to upper board edges; browning and spotting to text block edges. Mild rubbing to dustwrappers with very slight wear to edges; now professionally protected by superior non-adhesive polypropylene film. Very good. Postage quoted is for a standard format octavo book. Final charges may vary depending on size and weight. Since 1817, Lord Bathurst had wanted to examine whether transportation was an effective deterrent to crime. As well as being due to this peer's curiosity, the commissioner may also have been appointed in response to complaints to London from leaders of the community of free settlers in Australia, including John Macarthur. On the 5th of January, 1819, Bigge was appointed a special commissioner to examine the government of the Colony of New South Wales by Lord Bathurst, the Secretary of State for War and of the Colonies. His brief was to determine how far the expanding colony of New South Wales could be "made adequate to the Objects of its original Institution", which were understood to be purely a penal colony. He was to come to Australia to investigate all aspects of the colonial government, then under the governorship of Lachlan Macquarie, including finances, the church and the judiciary, and the convict system. Together with his secretary Thomas Hobbes Scott, Bigge arrived in Sydney on the 26th of September in 1819, on the ship "John Barry". Bigge finished gathering evidence in February of 1821 and on the 10th of February, sailed back to England aboard the ship "Dromedary". While Bigge was in Australia, there was noticeable friction between himself and Governor Macquarie and he spent much time in the company of the Macarthurs. Bigge's first report was published in June 1822 and his second and third reports in 1823. Elements of Bigge's reports criticised Governor Macquarie's administration including his emancipist policy, expenditure on public works and his management of convicts. Macquarie answered criticisms to the secretary of state, Lord Bathurst in 1822. Bigge's reports are now viewed as not showing sufficient detachment and, although there were many excellent recommendations, there were also trifling observations and hyper-critical detail. Many of the recommendations from Bigge's second report were incorporated into the New South Wales Act of 1823, which reformed the colony's government and judicial system. It also provided for a separate administration for Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania). Bigge's third report was the most impartial and least contentious. It afforded a generally clear picture of farming and grazing in the Sydney district and west of the Blue Mountains. It did not sufficiently acknowledge the important developments of the Illawarra district and tended to suggest falsely that agriculture was waning under Macquarie. Otherwise, it was well presented and included useful accounts of the state of revenue, trade and the country's economic position. In 1824, Governor Brisbane approved the sale of crown land in accordance with one of Bigge's recommendations. Previously only a nominal quit rent was required for grants by the crown. The establishment of the limits of location, also known as the Nineteen Counties, resulted from Bigge's recommendations as well. From 1823, Bigge was given a similar appointment to examine the government of the Cape Colony, Mauritius and Ceylon. Seller Inventory # 76661
