Written by William Henry Traill and published in 1901, 'A Queenly Colony: Pen Sketches and Camera Glimpses' ... "outlines some of the principal features of the colonization in Queensland". It includes an excellent selection of approximately 170 illustrations of people and places around Queensland.

The chapters cover a broad range of industries and places across the state – the fruit industry, the sugar industry, and pastoral and mining pursuits; the city of Brisbane, Gladstone, Rockhampton, Bundaberg, Charters Towers, the Blackall Range and the Western Country. In addition it examines a couple of other issues:

  • the social condition of the state – a glance at historical, educational and social aspects of Queensland
