This book, "A letter to the Right Honourable Lord Viscount Melbourne On the Causes of the Recent Derangement in the Money Market, and on Bank Reform," by Robert Torrens, William L. Melbourne, is a replication of a book originally published before 1837. It has been restored by human beings, page by page, so that you may enjoy it in a form as close to the original as possible.
This is the second edition of Plants of Melbourne's Western Plains. The number of plants described has been increased while still limiting the range to indigenous plants that are available for purchase and suitable for gardens. All the plants described are indigenous to the basalt clays and alluvial loams found on what is described as Melbourne's Volcanic or Western Plains. The list is not exhaustive but it includes most of the plants appropriate and available for use in gardening, revegetation and landscaping.
Melbourne: a city of stories grew out of Melbourne Museumâ€™s permanent exhibition, 'The Melbourne Story'. That makes it a selective history: one based on objects - things that have survived. The idea that objects can give rise to stories comes as no surprise to anyone whoâ€™s ever dug up a shard of old china in their garden, or found an ancient button down the back of a chair.
