OUTLINES OF A GRAMMAR, VOCABULARY, AND PHRASEOLOGY, OF THE ABORIGINAL LANGUAGE OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA, SPOKEN BY THE NATIVES IN AND FOR SOME DISTANCE AROUND ADELAIDE: TEICHELMANN, C.G. AND C.W. SCHURMANN

Published by the authors, Adelaide, 1840. Referenced in every in-depth study of Aboriginal language in South Australia, this work is definitive and, with the Kaurna language considered effectively dead, as a record it is becoming increasingly important.

Due to a printing error, there are duplications of the Introductory Preface and Outlines of a Grammar title page resulting in the loss of pages iv-vii of the Introductory Preface.

Original string-bound spine has been professionally restored. In purpose-built cloth case and otherwise excellent condition.
