The Inimitable Mr Meek

$24.00 $10.00

James Meek was a Victorian Era polymath: Artist, Entrepreneur, Author, Fisherman, Sly Grog Shop owner, Librarian and Explorer. He claimed to be the first permanent European resident of Ballarat. He was a master of Calligraphic Drawing – what was known in the 19th century as ‘Penmanship’. This book explores and celebrates the extraordinary trans-Tasman career of a decidedly eccentric gentleman who provided us with some of the earliest images of Ballarat.
