  • A Record of Tasmanian Nomenclature with Dates and Origins – J Moore-Robinson

    A Record of Tasmanian Nomenclature with Dates and Origins – J Moore-Robinson

    Extremely scarce item> we have not seen any original copies available .. and this one in fine condition.

    A pretty early place-name book … that is mainly European place-names. At a time when the consideration of original aboriginal names for places is foremost in mind this is a worthwhile counterpoint. We are not sure which work has most places covered … a confluence of both would be worthwhile … we don’t mean reading the obvious .. more the less obvious.

    Published at the Mercury Press in 1911.
    An unusually nice looking item. Thick like sugar paper covers, 106 pages, demi octavo, perfect bound, super condition for such a potentially fragile item over 110 year old

    Small scarce and in perfect condition.
