The Founding of South Australia, as recorded in the Journals of Mr Robert Gouger, First Colonial Secretary

London, Sampson Low, Marston, 1898.

Octavo, 239 pages plus 2 plates (a frontispiece portrait and 'Mr Gouger's Tent and Hut' opposite page 103).

Cloth very slightly flecked; front flyleaf and half-title discoloured by a relevant newspaper clipping (still present but now wrapped in acid-free tissue); paper a little discoloured around the edges (as ever); an excellent copy.

The first publication of these important foundation journals. The loosely inserted newspaper clipping contains an article from 'The Advertiser', 3 June 1933, written by the Reverend John Blacket: 'The debt of gratitude that we, as colonists today, owe him is beyond expression'. Ferguson 10475 (noting only the frontispiece portrait).
