Octavo, (iv), 166, (22, book catalogue) pages plus 8 hand-coloured plates (7 full-page plates and one large folding plate, printed surface 205x340mm). Original plain papered boards rubbed along the edges and worn at the corners; only a small portion of the spine - with part of the title-label - remains; front board expertly reattached; paper on the covers and the endpapers a little waterstained; small light tidemarks to the top margin of some leaves, with two others and one plate more heavily marked (and the latter heavily foxed); endpapers, early leaves and edges a little foxed; recent ownership signature on the pastedown; overall a good copy. The Sir Joseph Banks contribution (pages 151-166 plus the folding plate, based on drawings by Francis Bauer) first appeared in the fourth edition of this book in 1805. There is a five-line reference in it to "Specimens received from the colony of New South Wales . . . in the year 1803"; this edition is not in Ferguson, but see 399a and 533a (in the Addenda volume) for the fourth and fifth editions.
