The Collapse of Mining in South Australia. A Tragedy in Geology

Adelaide, Webb and Son, Printers, 1924.

217 × 95 mm, 19 pages.

Title-wrappers, saddle-stapled (as issued) and later bound in plain green cloth boards (with a manuscript title-label on the front cover); staples a little rusty; in excellent condition.

A scarce offprint from 'The Industrial Australian and Mining Standard'. It concludes: 'Official parochialism ... has evolved the present system of head-swollen "scientific" bureaucracy, which, combined with the stringency of almost unworkable laws, is the primary cause of the disastrous collapse of a once thriving and promising industry. Le roi est mort; vive le roi'.
