About this Item: Kangaroo Press, Kenthurst NSW, 1981. Octavo; hardcover, with gilt spine titles; 192pp., with many black & white illustrations. Minor wear; lightly toned text block edges; some marks to the fore-edge of the upper board; mild offset to the endpapers. Lightly rubbed dustwrapper; now professionally protected by superior non-adhesive polypropylene film. Near fine. Postage quoted is for a standard format octavo book. Final charges may vary depending on size and weight. Quong Tart was a colourful and unique character in the development of NSW and Australian history. A tea merchant, he arrived in Sydney with the badges of rank of high station in the Imperial Court of China and soon moved in all the social circles that the city provided. He was a keen cricketer and fascinated by Scots culture, often seen wearing a tartan kilt and was fond of singing Highland airs in a cultivated Scots brogue. His unique position as business entrepreneur and high-ranking member of his ethnic community, he was crucial for aiding in negotiations between Chinese settlers and White Australians during such incidents as the "Afghan" riot, where the Mayor of Sydney led a racially-antagonistic mob against Parliament House, and spoke for Chinese immigration in high level government talks to decide whether or not to restrict Chinese people from settling in NSW. He was also instrumental in stopping a deadly tong war. Wealthy, well-liked and respected by most sectors of society, he was nevertheless bashed to death in his tea-shop with an iron bar in a savage hate-crime that was likely fuelled by shadowy political enemies using a cat's-paw. Today he is remembered by several health-care institutions named after him in the suburb of Ashfield in Sydney, where his own grand villa once stood. Seller Inventory # 13684
