The Life of Samuel White, Soldier, Naturalist, Sailor. By his Son
Adelaide, W.K. Thomas and Co., Printers, 1920. Octavo, [iv], 116 pages with 5 illustrations plus 11 full-page plates (including 4 colour plates). Cloth sunned on the spine and (unevenly on the) front cover, with minor silverfish damage; short split to the head of the front hinge; a very good copy (internally fine). A biographical sketch of the South Australian pioneer and early field naturalist, who died in 1880 at the age of 45. This account, 'based upon a few remaining letters, notes of his early life, and notes compiled during the last twelve months he lived, added to by personal memories of the writer and those of his [father's] brother, who still survives', is largely an account of Samuel White's ornithological expeditions to north Queensland and the Aru Islands (the easternmost island group of the Moluccas in the Arafura Sea). McLaren 16754.
