Adelaide: Government Printer, 1923-1925. Quarto, 16 pen and ink drawings by Frederic Wood Jones mounted on stiff card, some captioned in his hand, a photograph of the author; all in a modern green box with label.

English born naturalist and anatomist Frederic Wood Jones (1879-1954), spent a considerable time in Australia and taught anatomy at the Universities of Adelaide and Melbourne throughout the 1920's and 1930's. He was a prodigious writer primarily on anatomical subjects (The Hand, The Foot) and held eccentric views on Darwinian and human evolution (Arboreal Man).

Wood Jones published his classic work on South Australian mammals in three parts from 1923-1925. This small collection of his highly competent drawings includes Australian Sea Lion, Marsupial Mole, Barred Bandicoot, plus various anatomical drawings.
