520    Matthew Flinders, surgeon and apothecary of Donington, in 
       south Lincolnshire, in the late eighteenth century, was 
       the father of the Matthew Flinders, sailor, navigator and 
       explorer, and one of the central figures in the early 
       history of the Australian nation. His diaries, published 
       here in full for the first time, reveal a wealth of detail
       about the home, the family and the village in which the 
       future explorer grew up. The daily routine of business, 
       socialising with neighbours, unusual events such as the 
       beaching of a whale near Boston, or the visit to Donington
       of Mr Powell the famous fire-eater are recorded alongside 
       family joys and sorrows, the births and deaths of children,
       the passing of Flinders's beloved wife Susanna and his 
       subsequent remarriage. The childhood and schooling of 
       Matthew junior are a recurring theme, and the purchase of 
       a two volume edition of Robinson Crusoe in 1782 gives a 
       hint of things to come, though as the diaries reveal, his 
       later career was a radical diversion from the original 
       plan for him to follow in his father's path. --Publisher
