LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Rigby Ltd, Adelaide - first edition ISBN:0851792901, 1971. Hardcover, 8½" x 5½", with dust jacket. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. (note: an address written on title page). Black covered boards with gold type to spine, photographic endpapers (Meteorological photo of cyclone), 30 b&w photographs, appendix, and index. Over the past 100 years, cyclones have wreaked havoc on north-eastern coast, wrecking ships, sinking pearling fleets, destroying cities from Townsville to Brisbane. A Queensland meteorologist, the colourful Clement Wragge, recognised the need to develop an early warning system of approaching cyclones. This is his story, and that of the many others who have suffered or died in these wars which nature wages against humanity.
