Aboriginals in Victoria

Aboriginals in Victoria

Melbourne: Commonwealth Government Printing Unit, for Department of Aboriginal Affairs, [1970S]. 13p., 6.5x9.25 inches, illustrated with a few period and contemporary institutional photos,very good booklet in orange stapled pictorial wraps. Mild fading, faintest signs of handling. There is a hand-correction in ink on p.13, and p.9 bears a stick-on errata slip disclaiming tenor of text on that and the next page.

The revisions suggested by the errata slip (and likewise the hand correction on p. 11 of a photo caption) seem to address a top-down paternalism displayed by text authors, as in this sentence, The Department considers it undesirable that Aboriginals are often regarded as recipients of welfare," itself doubtless an improvement over earlier topdown conceits.
