First edition. 4to. 106pp, frontis portrait of the author and 4 other tipped-in illustrations, 7 text figures. Modern rebinding of quarter leather and cloth boards, spine title label, with the front stiff card cover retained and the front of the pictorial dustwrapper (with the laid-down image of the Lachlan River, Tasmania) laid upon it. Slight offsetting on the half-title and light pale spotting to top edges, otherwise clean and crisp. Formerly the copy of Les Bridges, of the Hobart sporting goods (and fishing equipment) retailer Bridges Brothers, with the shop's ink stamp on the half-title and owner's name and address written in the head margins of the half-title and four other pages (just to be sure); another owner's name on the (new) front endpaper. A very good rebound copy, with an interesting association.
