The first volume contains eleven Parliamentary Papers (in all, 98 pages plus 7 plans or charts) plus a printed broadside and 11 manuscript documents totalling 19 pages. The documents, all dated 1878, include a proof copy of the Report of the Board of Advice (one page foolscap folio, signed in ink by the State Treasurer, and third-time Premier, James Boucaut, with a few minor corrections in pencil by Captain Frederick Howard, Chairman of the Board), a four-page draft report on Largs Bay - Semaphore Jetty Beach Boats (with a cover note initialled by Boucaut) and a two-page draft 'Report on probable effect of sea outlet for sewerage [sic] of Adelaide' by Howard. It also contains a large broadside (570 x 295 mm, printed in four columns, recto only) headed 'Outer Harbour at Marino. Public Meeting at Brighton. "South Australian Register", August 31, 1878'. The most substantial Parliamentary Paper is 'Report of the Select Committee . on Holdfast Bay Pier and Railway Bill 1869-70 (SAPP 209 of 1870; vi, 53 pages plus a small plan of Sandridge Old Pier). The best of the maps are Goalen's 1875 'Port Adelaide' (610 x 870 mm) and 'Plan of Proposed Harbour at Marino' (330 x 540 mm). The second volume contains twelve Parliamentary Papers, five of them duplicates of those in the first volume (in all, 216 pages plus 2 maps and a plan, but lacking the three plans from one duplicated paper, 'Ocean Steamer Accommodation' [SAPP 108 of 1878]; 3 pages plus an additional leaf, printed later and not present in the first volume). The most substantial paper is 'Report of the Select Committee . into the Desirability of forming an Outer Harbor (SAPP 113 of 1876; viii, 122 pages). The other maps are a folding 'Plan of Port Adelaide (342 x 251 mm) and 'Marino Bay with Proposed Breakwater' (400 x 555 mm). Most of the maps and charts are detached, and some have a few tears; there is sporadic foxing to the printed material, but overall the condition is excellent.
