London, Macmillan and Co. Limited, 1899.
Octavo, xx, 671 pages with 12 unnumbered line illustrations of churingas, a map and 130 illustrations (mainly after photographs) plus 2 folding maps, 3 folding charts, 4 folding chromolithographic plates and an erratum slip tipped in at page 1 (noting that on page 570, the tassel should be 'pubic' not 'public').
Olive-green gilt-pictorial buckram a little flecked and rubbed, with the spine a little sunned; all edges uncut; scattered light foxing; minimal chipping to some uncut leading edges; an excellent copy.
The head of the title page is inscribed in indelible pencil, in an unknown hand, 'With Kindest Regards from': this is followed by the ink signatures of both authors (as W. Baldwin Spencer and F.J. Gillen). A seminal work in the history of anthropology: in over forty years of dealing in works of this kind, we have neither seen nor heard of another copy signed by both Spencer and Gillen.
