Fat of the Land by Jim Morgan, SIGNED, 1st Ed

$29.99

Fat of the Land charts three generations of South Australian merchants who move between Adelaide, London and their mining company in New Caledonia. The original partners are Thomas Rutland, a bluff Bedford farm boy with a beautiful voice and ambitions to found a dynasty and Robert Grahame, a dour Scot and pastoralist. We see his son, John Grahame, take over the reins of the growing empire and guide it through hard times despite the tragedies in his personal life, only to hand over to a man of the new breed, Victor Godwin, to whom the actual business of the company means little other than the satisfaction of his own lust for money, power and flesh.

Paperback published in 1998. 1st Ed, 1st printing. Copy in GC, pages lightly tanned, very small stain to edges of first two dozen pages, light edge wear, previous owner's name snipped from front free end page. Signed by author on title page.
