Viking, 2004 Australian 1st Edition Hardcover. Condition: Fair. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. First Edition. Hardcover with dark blue boards and pictorial dust jacket. 1280g, 842 pages. This is an Australian saga spanning 80 years and four continents. Book would be in very good to fine condition - hasn't been read; spine remains uncreased, binding tight, no signs of foxing or tanning as yet. However, while humans have failed to devour this book, critters have made a meal of the boards, mostly at the bottom, and a tiny bit of the dust jacket. Hence the tiny resale price.
