The photographs are ordered according to the different States, and before each chapter of views there is statistical information on each State, mentioning the size of the area, the size of the area under wheat, the population, the total income by trade, and the amount of money on saving deposits. On p.2 there are facts about the whole of Australia, which makes it clear that "Australia is the best of the New Countries, the least developed, the richest in resources, and offers unrivalled opportunities to the man both with and without capital". Good quality illustrations. One copy known of in the National Library of Australia. One copy only known of being for sale on the internet, a 1912 edition for US$1593.
