Very faint dust foxing and one small dot (could be a remainder mark, but it is very small) to upper edge of text block. Faint foxing to half title. Internally unmarked; solidly bound. Bright, clean colour illustrations throughout. Bibliography; Name Index; Subject Index. "A thoughtful and authoritative consideration of the place of Aboriginal art within its own traditional settings and its contribution, not only to the Aboriginal heritage, but also to the cultural heritage of the wider Australian society. This book does not merely illustrate the diversity of paintings, drawings and carvings but encourages the reader towards a greater appreciation and understanding of what the Aborigines have achieved. -- Each plate is fully annotated and described. It is therefore a book that is relevant to anyone interested in art. It should appeal to all who are interested in living and changing art forms."
