The Cruise of the Avocet In Search of Skuas and other things
W. K. Thomas & Co., no date but, Adelaide 1916 - Square duodecimo, 68 pp., 15 photographic plates, original grey printed wrappers bound in; in attractive light tan half calf by Sangorski. Arctic Skuas and a South Australian cruise. An excellent copy of this memoir of a glorious expedition in January 1916 as a guest of the Rymill family on their "beautiful little motor yacht" the Avocet. White and his friends sailed to the islands at the mouth of the Gulfs of St. Vincent and St. Spencer, where they made their ornithological researches, White taking stock of the voyage of Matthew Flinders and some local Aboriginal myths in the process. The photographs are chiefly of birds and their habitats, but also include for example the motor yacht and several of their party. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
