'Steele Rudd' (A.H. Davis), Grandpa's Selection

'Steele Rudd' (A.H. Davis). Grandpa's Selection. Sydney: N.S.W. Bookstall, 1916. Illustrations by Lionel Lindsay.

Writing under the pseudonym 'Steele Rudd', Arthur Hoey Davis (1868-1935) is best known for the 'Dad and Dave' books which began as a series of sketches in The Bulletin in 1895. They were later compiled into book form as On Our Selection, which became the first in the series chronicling the adventures of the 'Rudd' family in 19th-century rural Australia.
