[vi], 372 pages with tables plus a folding frontispiece map of Gipsland. Original brown cloth with gold title on spine , edges of spine rubbed in a couple of spots. A bright clean ex library copy with a couple of stamped perforations on the map and title page and a small shelf sticker on upper spine. Internally very clean but inexplicably page 195 has a couple of short tears restored with sticky tape , a fair time ago as it has browned.
