Descripción Corkwood Press, Bundaberg, 1994. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Very Good. 1994 [facsimile edition]/ 1896. Quarto, four volumes, [ii], xviii, 220 pages with illustrations and a map plus 11 pages of plates and a large folding map (650 x 615 mm); [ii], iv, 432 pages with illustrations plus 28 pages of plates (1 folding, 11 in colour) and a corrigenda slip at page 1; [vi], 204 pages with illustrations plus 9 pages of plates (2 folding) and [vi], 200 pages with illustrations plus 20 pages of plates (6 folding, 4 of them in colour). Cloth; a few slight scuff marks; spines slightly sunned; one corner very slightly bumped; an excellent set. Limited to only 500 sets, and sold out on publication. The purpose of this scientific expedition, sponsored by mining magnate and philanthropist William Austin Horn, and with Charles Winnecke as commander and surveyor, was to examine the MacDonnell Ranges on the not unreasonable premise that 'when the rest of the Continent was submerged the elevated portions of the McDonnell [sic] Range existed as an island, and that consequently older forms of life might be found in the more inaccessible parts'. This in fact proved not to be the case, but the expedition (of some fourteen weeks and 2000 miles by camel) was an outstanding success. 'It was not the intention . . . to explore a new region . . . But in the pursuit of natural history the expedition split into independent groups and explored undiscovered areas, thus filling in more of the blank spaces in this vast region' (Feeken, Feeken and Spate). 'These volumes constitute one of the most substantial contributions in nineteenth-century Australian exploration [but perhaps more importantly, the expedition is] a landmark in anthropological history because it resulted in [Baldwin] Spencer meeting Frank Gillen' (Mulvaney). [We currently have in stock the Strehlow set of the original 1896 edition of this work. All volumes are signed 'T.G.H. Strehlow University of Adelaide' in ink on the front flyleaf; he has also written his father's name ('C. Strehlow') in ink on the retained original front flyleaf of two volumes which have been rebound in matching blue cloth. Approximately 70 pages have pencilled emphases, question marks, corrections or annotations IN THE HAND OF PASTOR CARL STREHLOW (with one by T.G.H. Strehlow initialled by him). The bulk of these occur in Volume 4, the anthropology volume (50 pages, with 15 pages in Volume 1 and six pages in Volume 2). The corrections are variously in English, German and Aranda, making it a uniquely significant set for any serious researcher or research institution. Further details on request].

Descripción London: Dulau and Co., . First edition., 1896. Pp. 112-175; 5 full page hand-colored plates, 3 plain plates. Later fine one-half brown morocco leather with five raised bands, lettered in gilt in two compartment on black and red morocco spine labels, tan decorated endpapers, sm 4to (10 1/4 x 7 3/4 inches). The Horn Scientific Expedition was the first primarily scientific expedition to study the natural history of Central Australia. It took place from May to August 1894, with expedition members first traveling by train from Adelaide to the railhead at Oodnadatta in South Australia, then using camels for transport to traverse over 3000 km of largely uncharted country from Oodnadatta through the Finke River basin to Alice Springs and the Macdonnell Ranges in what is now the Northern Territory. This volume presents the section on reptiles and amphibians collected on this expedition. The reptile section is by herpetologist Arthur H. Lucas, and the amphibian section was authored by Walter Baldwin Spencer, an English-Australian biologist. This important herpetological monograph is also bound with the Mammalia section by Baldwin Spencer (52 pages, 3 hand-colored plates, 1 plain plate) and the Crustacea section by Baldwin Spencer and T. S. Hall (22 pages, 4 plain plates). The reptile and amphibian section of the Horn Expedition is rarely offered as a separate work. Light age-toning to some text pages, color and black and white plates are bright and clean, the recent leather binding is very attractive; a tight and clean copy in near fine condition.

Descripción Dulau, London, 1896. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Very Good. First Edition. Quarto, four volumes, [ii], xviii, 220 pages with illustrations and a map plus 11 pages of plates and a large folding map (650 x 615 mm); [ii], iv, 432 pages with illustrations plus 28 pages of plates (1 folding, 11 in colour) and a corrigenda slip at page 1; [vi], 204 pages with illustrations plus 9 pages of plates (2 folding); and [vi], 200 pages with illustrations plus 20 pages of plates (6 folding, 4 of them in colour). Original cloth, all edges uncut; cloth slightly rubbed, bumped and flecked; small cancelled library stamp and a six-digit reference number in ink on each title page (but see below); some foxing (confined mainly to the endpapers and adjacent leaves); trifling chips to some uncut edges, and the very occasional fingermark to the odd page; overall an excellent set throughout. The set was withdrawn from the Public Library of New South Wales; the cancelled stamps are signed by Ida Emily Leeson (1885-1964), the second Mitchell Librarian (from 1932 until [officially] 1946). A pencilled note in each volume indicates the set entered the library on 16 March 1909. It subsequently entered the collection of Professor Andrew Arthur Abbie (1905-1976), anatomist and anthropologist, whose bookplate is on each front pastedown, with the date 'c.1938' written below it. Professor Abbie's annotations in pencil are to be found on nine pages of the fourth volume ('Anthropology'); the most significant of these are the 60 words written in the margins of several pages discussing diseases (pages 127-129). Interesting though this provenance is, let us not forget the books! The purpose of this scientific expedition, sponsored by mining magnate and philanthropist William Austin Horn, and with Charles Winnecke as commander and surveyor, was to examine the MacDonnell Ranges on the not unreasonable premise that 'when the rest of the Continent was submerged the elevated portions of the McDonnell [sic] Range existed as an island, and that consequently older forms of life might be found in the more inaccessible parts'. This in fact proved not to be the case, but the expedition (of some fourteen weeks and 2000 camel miles undertaken between May and August 1894) was an outstanding success. 'It was not the intention . . . to explore a new region . . . But in the pursuit of natural history the expedition split into independent groups and explored undiscovered areas, thus filling in more of the blank spaces in this vast region' (Feeken, Feeken and Spate: The Discovery and Exploration of Australia, [1991]). 'These volumes constitute one of the most substantial contributions in nineteenth-century Australian exploration [but perhaps more importantly, the expedition is] a landmark in anthropological history because it resulted in [Baldwin] Spencer meeting Frank Gillen' (Mulvaney).
