'Australian Men of Mark' was produced in two large volumes in 1888/1889. It is a wonderful centennial biographical record of thousands of men of the time.

This digital edition is unique and valuable in that it gathers all seven known variants of volume 2 into one complete fully searchable publication. All of volume 1 (same in all editions) and much of volume 2 contain substantial biographies and full page illustrations of the person concerned. Most volume 2 volumes also include a significant selection of mini-biographies - enabling inclusion of many more than would have been possible in larger form.

There are nearly 750 main biographies and over 3000 mini-biographies in the appendixes of some of the volume 2 series.

The subjects of the biographies originate from many different countries, and come from all walks of life. The main biographies are mostly 2 or more pages long, and contain valuable biographical and historical information. There are full page sepia portraits throughout. A helpful introduction by Keith Johnson is included.

This is a most valuable resource - doubly so because it gathers for the first time all known variant editions into a single fully searchable product.

High quality scanned images of the whole of the original books. This CD has been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.

System Requirements
  • Any computer using Adobe (Acrobat) Reader 4 or later
