About This Item

Brisbane: George Slater, 1865. First Edition. Hardcover. Brisbane, George Slater, 1865. Duodecimo, [ii] (title leaf, verso blank), [iv], 60 pages, plus a frontispiece portrait and very large folding map (488 × 848 mm), but without the errata slip issued with some copies ('correcting small errors on the map'). Original quarter cloth and thin printed papered boards slightly marked, with minimal expert conservation to the spine; scattered foxing; minor signs of use and age; map foxed (heavily on the left-hand panels, which also have some minor conservation work); overall, a very presentable copy of a very rare item. MacDonald's successful private expedition was undertaken at his own expense, as was the printing of this account. This copy is inscribed on the front flyleaf to 'Alfred G. Manning [?] Esq with the Author's compts'.

Ferguson 11936; Wantrup 184a.
