Octavo, xiv, 316 pages plus 51 plates and 2 folding maps.

Brown cloth; extremities a little rubbed; spine a little darkened; a very good copy with the dustwrapper rubbed, sunned, chipped and torn with a little loss.

Rare with the dustwrapper. 'An outline of the early exploration of Central Australia, and its political history, followed by an account of my own journeys in the regions'; these include important geological expeditions, the first aerial reconnaissance in 1929 and numerous Simpson Desert expeditions.
