First English edition. Based on Hellwald's 'Die Erde und ihre Völker'. With Ethnological Appendix by A.H. Keane. Edited and extended by A.R. Wallace: 'The present volume differs somewhat from the rest of this series of works, in consisting almost wholly of new matter. […] The paucity of available material has rendered it necessary for the volume to be practically rewritten, and I have thus been enabled to make it as complete a "Compendium" of the geography of Australasia as was possible within the prescribed limits.' (From the Preface)


8vo, orig. dec. cloth, slight rubbing to extremities; expert repair to top of spine and inner hinges. Small stain to foot of frontis; one folding map with tear to inner edge and along part of one fold, as well as a little foxed; minor fraying/soiling to outer margin of another folding plate; a few small tears/nicks to a couple of folding maps. Vg. From the library of English novelist and philanthropist, Walter Besant (1836-1901) with his book-plate to front pastedown.
