About This Item

London: Boone, 1846. First Edition. Hardcover. London, Boone, 1846. Octavo, two volumes, [2] (inserted advertising leaf for this work), xii, [ii] (list of charts, verso blank), [ii] (errata, verso blank), 522 (last blank), 8 (publisher's catalogue) pages [first volume], and [4] (inserted prospectus for Siborne's 'History of the War ... in 1815'), viii, [ii] (list of charts, verso blank), 544 (last blank), 8 (publisher's catalogue) pages [second volume], plus 26 engraved or lithographed plates and 7 (of 8) folding maps (lacking the chart of Bass Strait); all advertising leaves, and the slip for Eyre (at the end of the second volume), are present, but the one for Dutton is missing. Original cloth later rebacked, retaining the original backstrips, with new endpapers (but retaining all but the original front flyleaf as well); new endpocket in the second volume (containing five of the maps); cloth a little bumped and rubbed at the extremities; spine sunned, with a few blemishes; plates generally a little foxed and offset, with occasional foxing elsewhere; the leading edge of one plate and an adjacent leaf are slightly proud of the rest, and now a little chipped; small (discoloured) tape repair to the gutter of the first title page; relevant newspaper cuttings on three advertising pages and the rear pastedown of the first volume; basically a decent uncut set. The facsimile signature inkstamp of E. Angas Johnson is on both title pages. Edward Angas Johnson (1873-1951) was an Adelaide medical practitioner, prominent in public health circles; his grandmother was a daughter of George Fife Angas; he was a significant collector of books, curios and historical relics ('Australian Dictionary of Biography'). Wantrup 89a.
