Winnecke was the leader of the expedition, and in 'the natural order of things these (journals and maps) should have been published in connection with the scientific and other records of the Horn Expedition, as both supplementary and complementary to them'; after a financial disagreement with W.A. Horn (the organiser and backer of the venture) this did not occur. The first edition appeared as South Australian Parliamentary Paper Number 19 of 1896; it was reissued in this octavo format the following year.
Folio, 16 pages plus a very large folding colour map (1195x825mm).

A year later he assembled a party, equipped with camels, and set out to discover pastoral country on the Queensland border between the parallels 24* and 27* S. Immense tracts of waterless country were crossed, and in one instance water was found only after the camels had travelled 278 miles over high sandhills in the north-eastern portion of the Simpson Desert. The results of this expedition proved disappointing' (Feeken, Feeken and Spate); however, reading this account of it will not prove so! The last page-and-a-bit comprises von Mueller's report on the plants collected on the expedition. McLaren 16972.
