8vo, XVIII, 344pp. Hardcover with grey boards in good condition with no d/w, text in very good condition with light age tanning throughout and only a neat prior owner’s name on the ffep. This is the original comprehensive account of the principal commercial timbers of Australia, covering their properties, uses and treatment. Prior to this publication there was little literature discussing Australian timbers in a collected form to which enquirers could be referred, and none covering the Australian-wide field, suitable for ready reference by the student or the professional man. Supported by several useful b/w photographic plates after the index at rear.
