The report contains a detailed list of all species of plants collected, although it included only three new genera and seventeen new species: the complete index 'would convey a more comprehensive idea of the vegetation which clothes the barren interior of South Australia' than hitherto available.

George Fife Angas (1789-1879) was born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and the family had deep connections with the city. Although he had emigrated to South Australia in 1851, it was soon after he was elected to the first Legislative Council under responsible government in 1857 that 'his brother Joseph's fatal illness took him to England. He returned in September 1859' (Australian Dictionary of Biography). Presumably, this book was presented to him on that visit. Michael Treloar Antiquarian Booksellers
