Progress Report of the Exploration Committee…
Progress Report of the Exploration Committee of the Royal Society of Victoria for 1861.

Goverment Printer, 1862.

Foolscap folio, 7 pp., printed on blue paper; bound in modern half calf.

The important Sixth Progress Report issued after the adverse findings of the Royal Commission enquiring into the disastrous Burke and Wills expedition. This separate printing of the report is identifiable by its colophon on page 7, and considerably predates the collective printing of the reports in 1863, where the colophon appears on page 8. Self-justification was, of course, the reason for this advance separate issue of the Sixth Report.
