South Australia in 1887. A Handbook for the Adelaide Jubilee International Exhibition. With Introduction by Sir Samuel Davenport .

Adelaide, E. Spiller, Government Printer, 1887.

Octavo, 282 pages plus a folding double-sided plan (site plan recto, floor plans verso).

Original pictorial card covers, with a three-panel lithograph by 'Leo' on the front panel (featuring the 'Jubilee Exhibition' building, a bird's-eye view of 'Adelaide 1887', and the main bridge over the 'Torrens Lake'); wrappers lightly chipped and creased; edges a little foxed, with occasional light scattered foxing elsewhere; trifling creases to the front bottom and rear top corner tips of some leaves; minor signs of use; a very good copy.

Not hinted at in the title is the main attraction to this item these days - the lengthy catalogue to the exhibition and index to the exhibitors (pages 189-279).
