Adelaide, J. Williams, Printer, 1880 [second edition]/ 1879.

Octavo, [viii], 84, 80, 23 pages plus 3 albumen paper photographs (77 x 146 mm, 165 x 112 mm and 165 x 110 mm) of 5 drawings on 3 unnumbered card leaves.

Gilt- and blind-stamped brick-red cloth slightly rubbed at the extremities and a little flecked and marked; title page a little foxed and offset; a very good copy.

The last part of the book, 'A Voyage from Port Phillip to Adelaide in 1846' (23 pages) is new to this edition. The particulars of the photographs match those given in Holden (where the discrepancy in the number of plates present as against listed is explained). The plates are of drawings by Hamilton; he contributed similar sketches to the published journals of Grey and Eyre. The first edition of this work contains six plates, five of which are wood engravings based on the original drawings here photographed.
