Book Description Paradise Publishing, Australia, 2012. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 234 x 178 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Cherry first visited Elizabeth Bay House in the late 1980s and immediately fell in love with it. But it was not until 1994 that she decided to seriously research the history behind the man whose home it was originally - Alexander Macleay. Sydney s colonial society loved to ridicule the colourful and controversial figure of Alexander Macleay. Likewise, historians over the years have either criticised or completely ignored him. But when it came to serious matters, such as who was to be Australia s first Speaker in the Legislative Council in 1843, public opinion changed The story of the man who introduced wisteria to Australia as well as the stunning jacaranda whose mauve flowers adorn Sydney each October, is traced from the remote north of Scotland, and to London and the Linnean Society, and through his latter years in Sydney where he took up the position of Colonial Secretary in 1826. He never returned to his homeland. Dismissed from public office by Governor Bourke in 1836 amidst bitter intrigue, his life was filled with adventure, romance (especially his children s romances), a passion for natural history and financial problems which ultimately resulted in personal calamity. Yet the Macleay Museum at the University of Sydney and Macleay Street in Kings Cross remind us of the significance of Alexander Macleay, whilst the Royal Botanic Gardens, the New South Wales State Library, the Australian Museum and the Australian Club are just a few of Australia s early institutions that benefited from his active involvement. His magnificent house, Elizabeth Bay House, is still the finest colonial mansion in New South Wales. This is the first biography about this extraordinary Scottish gentleman. It will take its rightful place amongst the definitive histories of Australia s founding fathers. Bookseller Inventory # AAG9780646557526

Book Description Kulnura: Paradise Publishing, 2012., 2012. Large octavo, dustwrapper,462 pp.,colour and black and white photographs. Alexander Macleay (1767 - 1848) was a controversial and important figure of Australian colonial society. The Macleay Museum at the University of Sydney and Macleay Street in Kings Cross remind us of the significance of Alexander Macleay, whilst the Royal Botanic Gardens, the New South Wales State Library, the Australian Museum and the Australian Club are just a few of Australia's early institutions that benefited from his active involvement. Macleay's chief natural history interest was entomology and his entomological collection formed the basis of the Macleay Museum. His magnificent house, Elizabeth Bay House, is still the finest colonial mansion in New South Wales. This biography will take its rightful place amongst the definitive histories of Australia's founding fathers. Bookseller Inventory # 33843
