London: M. Walbrook, 1884.

Octavo, original blue cloth with gilt title.

A copy from the personal library of the Earl of Derby with his armorial bookplate and the following extensive inscription by the author: 'About the year 1841, during a leave of absence, I had the honour of an interview with the Rt. Hon. The Earl of Derby at the Colonial Office. The subjects introduced had reference, chiefly to the state of the Colony of Western Australia, the Colonists and the Aboriginal races. It is a singular and interesting coincidence, that after the lapse of so many years, a pleasing opportunity should he afforded to me, and that I should be still enabled to avail myself of it, to present to his son, another Rt. Hon. Earl of Derby, Secretary of State for the Colonial Department, a Book of mine, bearing strongly on the subjects alluded to above. May I hope for your kindly acceptance of it. G.F. Moore, 8 Brompton Square, South Kensington, 15 September 1884.'
