About This Item

Adelaide: George Robertson, 1880. First and only edition. Cloth. Otherwise very good condition. A descriptive guide to Adelaide and places in its vicinity. With a copious index. Ferguson 18881; OCLC 26386059 (only 4 copies). A scarce little treatise by the Adelaide town clerk who was amazed that there was no such handbook produced. He found the undertaking arduous and hopes he has paved the way for some future publication to be more complete. Never the less, Worsnop makes a valiant effort to record all institutions and buildings including churches, clubs, police stations, banks as well as schools, skating rink, aquarium, racecourses etc. all with a location and short history. 12mo. xv ,(i) , 96 pp. Original blue cloth covers, gilt title, rubbed at edges. OCLC: 219988290. Trove 5397133.
