About This Item

Adelaide: Government Printer, 1883. First Edition. Hardcover. Adelaide, Government Printer, 1883, 1883, 1883 and 1884. Foolscap folio, four reports, 3, 4, 2 and 3 pages. Bound together in recent cloth with titling on the front cover; a tiny tear to the top edge throughout, with the top margin of the first page slightly discoloured; excellent copies. South Australian Parliamentary Papers Number 53, 53A, 54 and 54A of 1883-84; only 670 copies of each of the last three reports were published. Although these reports are numbered consecutively, the periods covered are the last quarter of 1882 and the last three quarters of 1883; there is no report for the first quarter of 1883, probably because of the departure of the long-serving Government Resident, Edward Price, in that period. The usual pastoral, mining and agricultural reports are enlivened in the last paper by Acting Government Resident Gilbert McMinn's detailed account of his success in finding Stuart's marked tree at his last camp near the mouth of the Mary River. This discovery removed 'the last shadow of doubt in connection with the great explorer's achievement' brought on by Stuart's mistaken belief that he was following the Adelaide River.
