Original blind-stamped dark green cloth with the gilt 'View of Mt Olga from 60 miles West' on the front cover; cloth lightly marked, with minimal wear to the corners and a tiny horizontal split along the blind-stamping near the head of the spine; first and last few leaves foxed, with minimal scattered foxing elsewhere; inner hinges cracked but firm; overall an excellent copy.
Inscribed (by Baron Ferdinand von Mueller) 'To Dr H.A. John Clarke FRCS as a mark of respect from the originator of these enterprises'. Von Mueller was entrusted with 'the task of revising [Giles's] journals for the press ... as he has entered already anew the field of geographic exploration'. A short newspaper cutting (dated 11 October 1909) recording the death of Jesse [sic] Young, who accompanied Giles in 1875 from Adelaide to Perth, is loosely inserted.
