Report on the Plants collected during Mr Babbage's Expedition into the North-Western Interior of South Australia in 1858

Melbourne, Government Printer, 1859.

Folio, 21 pages.

Titling-wrappers, stab-sewn as issued; small blank piece torn from the bottom right-hand corner of the first two leaves; minimal scattered foxing; an excellent copy.

Victorian Parliamentary Paper Number 1 of 1859. The report contains a detailed list of all species of plants collected, although it included only three new genera and seventeen new species: the complete index 'would convey a more comprehensive idea of the vegetation which clothes the barren interior of South Australia' than hitherto available.
