Description

8vo, 88pp. Hardcover with light affected grey boards and d/w in fair condition with small tears and abrasions most notably with a 1 x 2cm segment missing from the top spine, otherwise very sound and now protected by clear archival covering, text is in very good condition though with tanning to free endpapers and half title page and a neat prior owner’s signature inside the front board. This is a book of some twenty simply written Australian Aboriginal legends with inimitable b/w illustrations by Lesbia Thorpe that combine to make this a small and delightful but unique and now very scarce volume of indigenous culture.
