Nomenclature of South Australia

Adelaide, Thomas, 1908.

Octavo, [iv], 150 pages plus 4 plates.

Original green papered boards slightly rubbed at the extremities with light wear to the corners; spine a little sunned, with minimal expert restoration to the head; endpapers offset, with the flyleaves heavily discoloured; text paper discoloured and brittle (as ever); an excellent copy of a notoriously poor production.

Offered together with a quantity of relevant newspaper clippings, and two mimeographed sheets (folded, unevenly discoloured and a little chipped) comprising 'A Full List of the New Names given to places bearing Names of Enemy Origin'. The list contains nearly 70 changed Germanic names, some of which have been altered in pencil in the book. A small clipping concerning Aboriginal place names is mounted on the verso of the title page, and a few small relevant clippings are tipped in throughout the book. With the ownership signature of [Miss] Sedley Towler, 11 April 1923.
