Book Reviews

Cover: Thomas Griffiths Wainewright (1794–1847), Frederick George Brodribb, 1840, chalk and gouache. Art Gallery of South Australia, gift of Miss L. K. Symon, 1965. Frederick Brodribb (1819–1840) was acting Assistant Surgeon when he died on 30 March 1840 – in a manner which resonates in COVID-19 times today – of ‘Typhus Fever, caught in attending to the patients in the Hospital ... he was indeed, a son of whom any parents might be proud; for he promised, if he had been spared, to be a credit not only to his family, but to the Colony, and an ornament to his profession.’ True Colonist 3 Apr 1840 p 7.
