Days of my Youth

$22.95 GST

These are the personal memoirs of the artist and Royal Academian, Charles Napier Hemy, as a ten-year-old boy travelling to and from Australia, and of his adventures in the Victorian goldfields in 1851; they were recorded later in life on board his yacht in Plymouth Harbour in 1904. These writings are one of the few first accounts of life in early Melbourne and the goldfields from a child’s perspective.
