With several black & white photos and a two-page map of Australia show early explorations. --- In full grey paper-covered boards with gilt-stamped spine titling.

Besides the dampstains, the unclipped jacket has chafing and creasing to extremities, but remains mostly intact and protected in archival mylar protector.; Octavo - 8 to 9 in. tall; 255 pages
