London, Longmans, Green, and Co., 1887.

Quarto, xviii, 194 pages plus 50 plates (each with a captioned tissue-guard).

Green cloth lettered in gilt on the spine, and lettered and decorated in gilt on the front cover; recased, retaining the original endpapers; top edge gilt, others uncut; covers a little flecked; extremities a little rubbed, with a touch of wear to one corner; leading edge very slightly marked; with the bookplate of William Godley mounted on the front pastedown; a very good copy (internally excellent).

This book was published to wide critical acclaim. Lindt was awarded a gold medal at the 1888 Melbourne Centennial International Exhibition, 'with special mention for his ethnological photographs, landscapes and photographs from shipboard; they are simply unique. From a technical point of view the mentioned pictures may be considered as the best in this Exhibition. The ethnological illustrations from New Guinea are even more interesting ...'
