Octavo, [44] pages plus a map and 7 plates. Original wrappers; a fine copy. This lengthy article is a real sleeper: apart from being a potted history of small-pox in Australia, it contains much local information from Mrs Louisa Karpeny (Kontinyeri), a Narrinyeri woman born around 1830. As Dr Stirling put it, 'Mrs Karpeny related her reminiscences with much dramatic vividness, and as they are interesting in themselves, I will make no apology for giving them at some length, even when they refer to other matters than the immediate object of my inquiry'. The plates include three portraits of Kontinyeri. Please use the 'Ask Bookseller a Question' link below to confirm availability and postage charges. N° de ref. de la librería 20758
