Bailliere's South Australian Gazetteer and Road Guide. Containing the Most Recent and Accurate Information as to Every Place in the Colony

Adelaide, F.P. Bailliere, 1866.

Octavo, ii (recto of the front flyleaf)-viii, [i] (blank)-viii, 296, xxxvii (advertisements), [i] (advertisement on the recto of the rear flyleaf) pages plus a large folding extensively hand-coloured map (755 × 620 mm, dated 1867) and a small blue-paper advertising sheet for 'Companion Works' to this volume (respectively, after page vi, and at the end, of the advertisements at the front of the book), a small octavo 16-page publisher's catalogue dated January 1866, and a full-page blue-paper advertisement (the bottom half announcing that Landsborough's journal is 'Just Published', verso blank) (respectively, after page xvi, and after page xxxii, in the advertisements at the end of the book), and endpaper advertisements front and rear.

Publisher's half morocco and stippled cloth, lettered in gilt, in compartments, on the spine (with the date '1867'); leather lightly rubbed at the extremities; early shelf number at the foot of the spine (originally in black ink over a white patch) now greatly softened in impact by our conservator; a few short splits along map folds expertly sealed; as attractive a copy in original condition as one might hope to find. The map is a beauty; it is easy to understand why it is rarely found in copies of this book.
