With b/w frontisp. map num. full-page col. and b/w illusts. and 1 fold. col. plate. 1st ed. NOTE: As the secret and sacred rites of the Aborigines are herein recorded the publication was withdrawn and suppressed from sale soon after publication; hence few copies remain in circulation. Of all of Mountford's work this narrative of the 1940 University of Adelaide Expedition to the Western Desert published in the last year of his life is considered by many to be his most important.

Descripción (Adelaide), Rigby, (1976)., 1976. First Edition; 4to; pp. 628; frontispiece map, 737 b/w. illustrations, 12 full-page colour plates, one of which is large fold out plate, 33 figures, bibliography, epilogue, index; dustjacket, a couple of very minor chips to top edge of dustjacket, previous owners bookplate on front endpaper, otherwise a very good copy. First Edition of Mountford's 1940 Western Desert Expedition published in the last year of his life. There was much controversy over the contents of the book. The judge in Foster v. Mountford and Rigby Ltd., (1976)14 A.L.R. 71. found that a number of photographs, drawings and descriptions of persons, places and ceremonies found in the book had 'deep religious and cultural significance" to the plaintiffs. A significant portion of the edition was then suppressed and withdrawn from sale. Copies have become increasingly scarce. Nº de ref. de la librería 16990

Descripción Rigby, Adelaide SA, 1976. Quarto; hardcover, with gilt spine-titling; 628pp., with many black & white illustrations and 13pp. of full-colour colour plates, one folding. Very slightly rolled; some very light toning to the text block edges; previous owner's ink inscription to the flyleaf; some mild offset to the endpaper edges. Dustwrapper lightly rubbed and sunned along the spine panel, with some very light wear to the top edge; now professionally protected by superior non-adhesive polypropylene film. Very good to near fine. Laid in: a slip of printed paper warning against exposing the book to indigenous Australian perusal without first consulting tribal elders. Image of the cover available upon request only. Ex-libris: Michael Boddy. Postage quoted is for a standard format octavo book. Final charges may vary depending on size and weight. This book concerns the aborigines of the Mann and Musgrave ranges who lived in one of the world's most arid and desolate regions - the study of a people isolated from every outside influence. Dr Mountford shows how the landforms of the tribal areas are interwoven in their spiritual lives and how they inspired a cherished body of myths, legends rituals and ceremonies. These observations are augmented by a collection of drawings and photographs principally taken during his own field researches and is closely integrated with the text. .
