GREAT BARRIER REEF COMMITTEE. - Reports of the Great Barrier Reef Committee. Vol. I. [... to Vol.VI., Part 3].

 1467647174,
Brisbane 1925 - 56. Bound in 3 volumes octavo cloth, all original wrappers preserved; folding maps, photo illustrations &c throughout. A very good set. ¶ All published. This was Geoffrey Ingleton's set and has his note explaining that in 1961 the editor admitted defeat - nothing had been published since 1956 - and publication was suspended. Modern science, in the form of contributions by numerous experts, applied to the investigation of all aspects of the reef and nearby mainland - geology, physiography, oceanography, zoology, botany and economics. There are three major, essential works on the reef - Saville Kent's book, the reports of the Barrier Reef Expedition (which are hard to find complete) and this, which seems downright rare.
