Cover title.

Some sets in colour.

One of Library's FC copies is bound, but lacks the printed paper wrappers, the page of introduction from the Sydney Times, and the plate of the Native dance. One of the plates in this copy, entitled Cullabaa, has no imprint. Another copy (unbound) contains all the plates plus photographs, and negatives, of the cover and 1st page.
