Notable South Australians; or, Colonists - Past and Present

Adelaide, Carey, Page & Co., Printers ('Published under the Author's own immediate Supervision'), 1885.

Octavo, viii, 288, [20] (advertisements) pages plus 16 lithographs and a mounted albumen paper photograph (98 × 59 mm).

Gilt-decorated plum-coloured stippled cloth sunned on the spine, with the front cover lightly mottled and marked; extremities slightly rubbed, with the head of the spine very slightly snagged and the bottom corners a little bumped; an excellent copy (internally fine).

The lithographs are a delightful frontispiece view of Glenelg in 1837 after John Michael Skipper and 15 full-page portraits. The photograph is of Loyau, facing the camera, with his eyes looking a little to his right; the photographers George and Walton are credited in the negative. We have identified numerous variants in the plate content. Ferguson 11748 (recording only the frontispiece, with 14 pages of advertisements); Holden 71.
