Adelaide, Friends of the State Library of South Australia, 2007 [first thus].
Octavo, xxxviii, 122 pages (including 38 full-page illustrations, 9 of them in monochrome) with 3 portraits and a colour frontispiece plus a small folding map.
Quarter calf and blind-pictorial cloth; a fine copy.
Number 49 of 150 copies of the deluxe issue (in a total edition of only 400 copies). The 30-page introduction by Valmai Hankel is new to this edition, a most interesting compilation which has as its linchpin 'Howitt's presidential address to the Australasian Association for the Advancement of Science, held in Adelaide in 1907, and published the same year as part of the Report of the Association's meeting'. The very rare pictorial pamphlet, 'Illustrations to the Diaries of Burke & Will's [sic] Expedition to Carpentaria', of which only four surviving copies have been located, is here reproduced for the first time.
