256 pages, end page maps, index. All the pages are illustrated with black-and-white photographs culled from sources both obscure and contemporary. Black-and-white illustrated dust jacket. Slight spotting of the top edge of the text block, otherwise in very good condition. Research of the pictures was done by Jane Fenton, although there is no indication that she was involved in any of the text accompanying each photograph. Published near the time of the bicentenary of white settlement, this book mirrors the story of ordinary Australians, of people in power and of climactic events. Through the camera we can look back at the times of early settlement, the violent suppression of the Aborigines, convict times, the gold rushes and the great period of exploration, the growth of transport and farming, towns and cities and the world of boom and bust, bosses and unions, war and politics, to the present. The photographs are accompanied by a brilliant text which explains the life of Australia as revealed by the indelible images of our past. -- front fold over blurb. Size: 4to 9¾" - 12" tall.
