George Caley (1770?1829) was a nineteenth century English naturalist who was a collector for Sir Joseph Banks in the colony of New South Wales from 1800 to 1810.

This is a rare account of the library of a nineteenth century naturalist.

Invasion to Embassy challenges the conventional view of Aboriginal politics to present a bold new account of Aboriginal responses to invasion and dispossession in New South Wales.
