Henry Handel Richardson in Maldon Book Sales

Henry Handel Richardson in MaldonHenry Handel Richardson in Maldon is an illustrated booklet that details the young Richardson's life in the Victorian gold mining town. She arrived in Maldon as Ethel Richardson in 1880 at the age of 10 with her mother and sister, after the traumatic decline and death of their husband and father, Walter Lindesay Richardson. HHR later wrote that Maldon nourished the imagination of the future writer.

The booklet was winner of the 'Best Walk/Tour' prize in the Victorian Community History Awards 2011, sponsored by the Royal Historical Society of Victoria and the Public Records Office of Victoria.

The authors, Peter Cuffley, Helen McBurney, Janey Runci and Geoff Palmer, assisted by the Maldon community, have produced a well-illustrated and carefully researched booklet that contains three walks; the first, which has a clear map, describes 16 buildings that would have been familiar to the Richardsons; the second, focuses on significant cemetery graves from the 1880's period; and the last, records places fictionalised in Richardson's The Getting of Wisdom.
