Evidences of an Inland Sea
Hardback - Author: Fletcher Moore, George. Publisher: Hesperian Press. George Fletcher Moore's 'Evidences of an Inland Sea', published in Dublin in January 1837, details an important chapter in the history of Australian exploration. Its purpose was to demonstrate the existence of a large sea or lake inland from Perth. Moore, Western Australia's advocate-general, based his claim on evidence gathered during explorations beyond the Avon River to the east and as far north as the Moore River in the previous year. He also drew heavily on information provided by his Aboriginal companions for they had seen and heard of country he had yet to explore.
