ERNEST GILES'S EXPLORATIONS 1872-1876 PARLIAMENTARY EDITIONS

$120.00

Between 1872 and 1876 Ernest Giles led five expeditions in South Australia, the Northern Territory and Western Australia, and crossed more undiscovered country than any other Australian explorer.

 

The best-known account of his travels is his book, Australia twice traversed (two volumes, London, 1889), in which he revised the journals he had written at the end of his expeditions. The accounts of four of these were immediately published as parliamentary papers.

 

For the second title in our series of Australian Parliamentary Editions we chose these four South Australian Parliamentary papers, and have reproduced them in a format much more legible and attractive than the original.

 

In her introduction Valmai Hankel describes Giles as 'the most literate, imaginative and romantic, and his journals the most lyrical, enthusiastic and entrancing' of all the Australian explorers.
