This is a 1st edition Lilliput Aboriginal Words of Australia printed in 1966 ,it has 560 pgs and has many illustrations .The 1st half is English -Aboriginal ,then phrases and sentences second half is reversed Aboriginal-English . It has the complete introduction by A.W.Reed. All this in a book that measures 2 inches x 1in . I have owned this my whole life and enjoyed looking though it as a child .

    I too used too have this dictionary, mine got destroyed . i always hoped such an important part of history was not lost. I am relieved to find another still remains.
    and pleased your intent seems to be to keep it well. So much of aboriginal language sits afront the door to extinction.What a magic minature this for sharing
