A Voyage to Terra Australis, undertaken for the purpose of completing the discovery of that vast country .. in the years 1801, 1802, and 1803

Adelaide, Government Printer, 1989 (facsimile edition)/ 1814.

Large quarto, two volumes of text plus the elephant folio atlas (containing 18 charts and 10 plates).

Half leather and cloth; a fine set in the dark red felt-covered wooden box (still in the original printed carton, which is marked and a little damaged).

A superb production, limited to only 500 numbered sets (this is number 66); not all of them were issued in these boxes as advertised. Apparently the successful tender was paid in full soon after the job began, and the box-maker was last seen heading for the hills (overseas) with the money and a big smile! Many sets were issued with perspex lids which fitted snugly over the custom-made bases, but they often proved to be a poor substitute. [3 items].
