This ninth issue of the 'Australian Handbook and Almanac and Shippers and Importers Directory' is a guide with all kinds of interesting and unique information, and covers New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, West Australia, Tasmania, Queensland, New Zealand, and Fiji Islands.

Apart from a descriptive account and statistical information for New Zealand and each of the Australian colonies and their towns, you will also find details on climate, education, religion, agriculture, population, societies and clubs, parliamentary and official departments, local self-government, telegraphic and postal details, police, banking, shipping, mining and land regulations, newspaper, manufacturers, emigration, as well as naval and military forces. You will also find details of the governors, consuls and ecclesiastical appointments of the time.

The Directory and Business Guide portion of the Handbook is a comprehensive listing of importers, exporters and shippers. For the importers and exporters it lists their name, address and what they trade (pictures and picture frames, fancy soaps, writing ink and ink powders, medical glasses, brushware and more) - exporters from England and Scotland and importers throughout Australia, New Zealand and Fiji.

Features of this Handbook include:

  • emigration information "likely to be of service to intending Emigrants"
  • land regulations for each state and New Zealand
  • historical outline and chronology of events in Australian history
  • obituaries of people who died during 1876 and 1877
  • hundreds of advertisements

This handbook gives a snapshot of the world of our ancestors of the late 1870s.
