A Life – T W Edgeworth David

By: David Branagan (250/35678)
Publisher: National Library of Australia ISBN: 0-642-10791-2

This full length life of Sir T.W. Edgeworth David (1858-1934) – the great geologist, Antarctic pioneer, soldier, teacher and public figure – is a long overdue reappraisal of a magnificent and endearing Australian.

Set against the background of national and international scientific and intellectual culture from the 1880s to the 1930s, and lavishly illustrated with over 90 compelling images, the book tells the tumultuous life story of this remarkable ‘knight errant of science’ who was once a household name, and whose achievements remain with us today.
