X, 278 pages, author's note, prelude by author, knowledge, endnotes and index. The text is illustrated with four pages of photography between page 134 and 135. Colour illustrated front cover with purple and white titles to the front panel and backstrip. In this book the author, an obsessive art researcher, goes in search of Australia's "National Picture". " The National Picture had been missing for more than 150 years. It depicts one of the most controversial moments in Australian history: the ' conciliation' of a group of Tasmanian Aborigines by George Augustus Robinson. Scheding simply means to find The National Picture and then move it on to the highest bidder. But as his feverish hunt propels him through rare archives, dusty basements and neglected antics, and takes him halfway around the world, he is also drawn deep into the story behind the image and discovers, much much more than he bargained for. " -- from the rear panel blurb. A little rubbing to the book edges and book panels. Browning to the text block edges and internal text, commensurate poor paper used in book's production.
