2002 - Matthew Flinders' Cat

The Viking, Penguin Books Australia First Edition was published in 2002, but I cannot find any information that specifies the month or day of publication

McArthur & Company published an edition in Canada in 2003

I do not believe this book was published in Britain, and this book was not published in the United States

I cannot stress enough how grateful I am to Brett Courtenay for arranging for me to receive a signed copy

My Canadian copy has a signed bookplate
