Calcutta, Thacker, Spink, 1879 [first edition].
Octavo, [vi], 179 pages.
Original pictorial cloth flecked and lightly inkstained; edges a little marked (affecting slightly the endpapers); a very good copy.
Provenance: E.W. Hawker, with his signature; some light marginal pencilling is presumably in his hand. Edward William Hawker (1850-1940), barrister, grazier, politician and metallurgist, was born at Bungaree (near Clare), the property established by his father George in 1841. In 1895 he inherited a large estate at East Bungaree ('Australian Dictionary of Biography').
