9780855757175: Australia: William Blandowski's Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Aboriginal Australia

For the first time in English, this 1850s illustrated encyclopedia of Aboriginal life
explores the potential of images to portray the lives of people engaged in everyday activities, dramatic conflicts, and rituals. Including photographs by German explorer and natural scientist William Blandowski as well as snapshots, sketches, and illustrations by other contributors, this unique account not only highlights Australia’s geography, ecology, and wildlife, but also contains the only 19th-century portrait of the Nyeri Nyeri people.
