Terre NapoleonSir Ernest Scott KB (1867-1939) was an Australian historian. He was born and educated in England and worked as a journalist on the London Globe before migrating to Australia in 1892, where he joined the staff of The Herald newspaper in Melbourne. After the publication of Terre Napoleon: A History of French Explorations and Projects in Australia (1910) and Life of Laperouse (1913) his reputation as a historian was established. Scott's other works included The Life of Captain Matthew Flinders (1914), A Short History of Australia (1916) and Australian Discovery (1929). Terre Napoleon is a fascinating discussion of French intentions in Australian waters, also covering the encounter of Flinders with Baudin and his subsequent incarceration in Mauritius.
