Royal Society of Victoria. President's Anniversary Address for 1864 [cover title]

Melbourne, Wilson and Mackinnon, Printers, 1864.

Octavo, 32 pages (last blank).

Stab-sewn as issued; a fine copy (indeed, uncirculated).

The address was delivered by Professor McCoy at the Society's Anniversary Dinner on 25 April 1864. Among other things, he discusses at some length and in great detail the 'unlucky mischances' that dogged the last weeks of the Burke and Wills expedition. McLaren 6620 (a very rudimentary and indifferent entry).
