Narrative of an Expedition into Central Australia .. during the years 1844, 5 and 6

London, 1849.

Octavo, two volumes, x, iv, [5]-416 pages with 11 in-text illustrations, plus 8 plates (2 tinted, 2 hand-coloured) and a folding hand-coloured map; and vi, 308, 92 (appendix) pages with 4 in-text illustrations plus 8 plates (2 hand-coloured).

Original blind-stamped green cloth (the remainder binding of the 1850s) a little worn, the spines sunned (and with a small repair to the head of one rear joint); marginal discolouration to some plates and adjacent leaves; occasional light foxing; light indentation to the uncut leading edges of one volume; a decent set.

An obituary for Lady Sturt ('The Times', 9 June 1887) is mounted on the first flyleaf (cockling it a little). With the 1902 ownership signatures of Robert Kyffin Thomas (of the pioneering SA family), and the earlier name-stamps of J. Metcalf.
