Crime in the Port Phillip District

Judge Paul Mullaly's book, Crime in the Port Phillip District, 1835-51, won the Judges' Special Prize for Excellence in the Victorian Community History Awards in 2009.  It presents a particular view of society in Melbourne and the Port Phillip District in the early days of settlement, and it is offered at the very special price of $29.95 while stocks last.

The index for this volume is on the publisher's website. You can download it from here.

Judge Mullaly was also the originator of the project to place the digitised Willis Casebooks on the RHSV website, covering the period in 1842-43 when Willis was the Resident Judge of Port Phillip.
