Adelaide, W.K. Thomas, 1911 [a new work - see footnote].
Octavo, [viii], 80, [4, detachable order forms for the publisher's newspapers, printed rectos only] pages with a few illustrations and numerous pictorial advertisements plus advertising on the covers.
Wrappers with the title page details repeated on the front cover; contemporary date (7 September 1911) stamped at the head of the front cover; a fine copy.
Reprinted from The Register and The Observer; a selection of some of the most educative and interesting articles from the 'Man on the Land' column. A pamphlet with the same title but containing a different selection of material was published twelve months earlier (with a second printing of 2000 copies also called for). This second selection includes articles on various aspects of animal husbandry, as well as vines, wattle bark, blacksmithing, charcoal, sparrow poisoning and potato growing - with as much space devoted to roses as to any topic.
