de Brune, Aiden: The Pursuits of Mr Peter Pell (1920);v1; 10 Oct 2019

Aiden de Brune (1874-1946) lived in Western Australia from 1910 to 1920, before moving to Sydney. While in Western Australia he published his first work of fiction, as a serial in the Bunbury Herald. It consists of 12 episodes in the life of Mr Peter Pell, a man of somewhat (all right, exceedingly!) elastic ethics, from penniless and sleeping on a park bench on Perth's Esplanade, (a riverside park) to great heights. The period of the book is roughly 1913-1918.

1: The Pursuit of Sixpence.
2: The Pursuit of a Fly.
3: In Pursuit of Love
4: In Pursuit of an Occupation
5: In Pursuit of Charity.
6: In Pursuit of the Last Chance.
7: In Pursuit of Glory
8: The Pursuit of Society.
9: The Pursuit of a Spy
10: The Pursuit of an Electorate
11: The Pursuit of a Monopoly
12: The Pursuit of Peace

One episode involves horse racing, and is replete with racecourse jargon which most readers find incomprehensible, as it is both local to Australia and 100 years out of date!

It was never published in book form. I created the cover using the artwork from a 1915 hat advertisement.
