Melbourne, Clarson, Shallard & Co., Printers & Publishers, 1863.
Octavo, 16 pages plus the wrappers (repeating the full title page details on the front cover, with a full-page wood-engraving of Burke's grave on the outside rear cover).
Sewn into later plain card covers, retaining the original wrappers; occasional light foxing and minor signs of use; a very good copy.
The only edition and rare (and one can imagine the attrition rate of the pictorial wrappers among extant copies is significant). 'Although Foster's 16-page pamphlet glances at the work of earlier explorers it is principally of interest for its connection with the Burke and Wills Expedition ... of particular note [is the] wood engraving depicting Burke's Grave on Cooper's Creek ... after a sketch by Alfred William Howitt, who not only led the expedition which rescued King, but also led the expedition which returned the remains of Burke and Wills to Melbourne' (Wantrup).
