Melbourne : F. F. Bailliere, 1863. First edition. Octavo, lettered pink papered cards (lightly discoloured), cloth spine, pp. [vi, advertisements], folding map (short tear at gutter), title page, 97; [3]; occasional foxing.

Account of Stuart’s fifth and sixth expeditions from Adelaide to the north of Australia in search of new grazing land and a passage across the continent. Issued in pink and yellow wrappers with no priority established between them. The term ‘With charts’ on the title page is misleading, as only one map was included in the book.
