Abstract

Notes are given on the parentage and histories of Fanny Cochrane and Mathinna, the first a half-caste Tasmanian and the second a full-blood. The busts of the Tasmanian aborigines attributed to P-M-A-Durnoutier are all, or nearly all, based on originals by other hands. Some sculptures by Benjamin Law are listed. Some new information about Thomas Bock's portraits of the Tasmanian aborigines is considererd.
