Kangaroo Island, 'Adelaide's Sanatorium'. Comprising a Series of Articles written for 'The Register' and 'The Observer'

Adelaide, W.K. Thomas & Co., Printers and Publishers, 1905 (third edition, preface dated 30 June)/ 1905.

Octavo, 47 pages with an illustration plus 22 pages of plates, a small folding map and an additional leaf tipped in on page [3], 'Introduction to the Third Edition' (being the one-page introduction to the [second] edition, dated May 1905).

Pictorial wrappers slightly marked and creased, with a few minute chips to the spine; an excellent copy.

We presume the first edition to be the series of newspaper articles. We have not seen this third edition before; apart from the tipped-in leaf, it also contains an additional two pages of text on pages 45-47 ('Addenda, 3rd Edition'). It is mentioned in the introduction as 'a letter written by the late Colonel Light, having reference to Kangaroo Island, also an extract from "The Adelaide Observer", of October 11, 1845'.
