Recent cloth lettered in gilt on the front cover; last leaf of the Lindsay article (with less than half a page of related text) supplied in facsimile; in excellent condition. (The facsimile leaf, although unfortunate, is an occupational hazard when breaking these and similar volumes into their separate articles. Unlike chapters in a book, each article starts as soon as the previous one finishes, and often, interesting travels in one continent will be followed by important expeditions in another - the last page of one or the first page of the other has to be sacrificed in the break-up).
Lindsay's article gives an account of several expeditions (two of them quite short). On the main expedition, from Dalhousie to the Gulf of Carpentaria between February and October 1886, 'he passed through a large tract of previously unexplored country in the Northern Territory ... a little west of the Queensland boundary'. The last three pages of his article contain vocabularies of tribes encountered on that expedition. Chewings offers 'a brief outline of Central Australia and its prospects', with an introductory summary on exploration; the main emphasis is on geology.
