Australian Scholarly Editions Centre Projects (ASEC)

Launch of the Academy Edition of Robbery Under Arms

The Boldrewood edition, edited by Paul Eggert and Elizabeth Webby, was launched on 6 December 2006 at the High Court of Australia by Justice Michael Kirby. A full suit of Kelly Gang armour, the genuine article that the Gang’s penman Joe Byrne wore at Glenrowan, looked balefully on. Read the speech in reply.
