The Cyclopedias that were published for most states of Australia around the beginning of the 20th Century are a vast resource of historical and biographical information on the state concerned - the people, towns, industries, professional, commercial and social institutions and much more.

They include thousands of illustrations, the larger number of these being portraits of those whose biographies are included. These are not just the rich and famous, but include a high percentage of the ordinary citizens in each community.

This CD includes facsimile images of the entire 1800 pages of the three volumes of the original 1907-1909 edition of the Cyclopedia of Victoria.

    Greatly enhanced access to Cyclopedia content
    As with many other products being published under the Archive CD Books project, access to the vast amount of information is now greatly enhanced. The indexing of the original volumes and their general arrangement still give only limited references to the many people, places and subjects that are largely hidden in the extensive text.

    NOW that is all changing. The entire text is now easily searched. And the machine read OCR text has been corrected to ensure 100% of the text can now be searched.

    Originally produced by Archive CD Books Australia in 2005, this title has now been remastered and re-released, and includes better searching capability. This CD contains high quality scanned images of the whole of the original book, and has been bookmarked for easy navigation. Pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.

  • System Requirements
    • Any computer using Adobe (Acrobat) Reader 4 or later
    • Adobe Reader 6 or later is recommended for CDs with searchable text
