South Australia. Its Progress and Prosperity

London, Sampson Low, Son, and Marston, 1866.

Octavo, xii, 474, [2] (publishers' advertisements), 16 (publishers' catalogue) pages plus a folding hand-coloured frontispiece map of South Australia (370 × 325 mm, with a small inset map of Australia).

Blind-decorated brick-red cloth, all edges uncut; covers bumped at the extremities and heavily flecked, with minor loss to silverfish to the spine (affecting only one letter of the title); short tear to the head of the spine; trifling signs of use; a very good copy (internally excellent).

The author was 'late Member of the Legislative Council at Adelaide' (from 1855 to 1864); he was also George Fife Angas's agent and attorney in SA from 1841 to 1844. This copy comes from the collection of George Fife Angas himself; the flyleaf carries his full signature, and is further inscribed in his hand 'Adelaide, Sept. 10, 1866'. Ferguson 9691 (not recording the map).
