Bass and Flinders successful circumnavigation of Van Diemens Land in 1798 and 1799 in the sloop Norfolk, which established beyond doubt the existence of Bass Strait and that Van Diemens Land was an island - has been overlooked to the extent that no separate work brings together source materials relating to the voyage. Van Diemen's Land Revealed is compiled to correct this deficiency, and presents original accounts written by the two adventurers together with commentary, notes and references, a bibliography and index. The account includes the earlier, and progressive, voyages by Bass from Sydney Cove to Western Port (in Tom Thumb I & II and in a whaleboat) and of Flinders to the wreck of the Sydney Cove.
