First Edition. 12mo, 23 pp, in original wrappers. Mild crease to front cover; very good. Lee writes in the Preface that his work that "the aborigines of this far away country have no written language, and aims to put before the traveler or trader a means of communication with them which it is hoped will be of mutual benefit to both. It includes word of most use for commerce and travel and provides a lexicon of monetary terms, as well as the native names for some of the major traders and trading posts.
