The 'Cyclopedia of Western Australia' edited by J. Battye, and originally printed in 1912-1913 has been described as an ‘historical and commercial review, which includes descriptive and biographical facts, figures and illustrations. An epitome of progress’.

Originally published as two separate volumes, this historical work is a must for all with connections to Western Australia. It consists of not only a good general history of Western Australia, and apart from being well illustrated, it includes sections on Western Australian localities with a brief history and description, information on public buildings, charitable institutions, water supply and local manufacturers.

One of the major features of this book series is that includes hundreds biographies of prominent local people (arranged either by trade or locality), including in many cases a portrait. Here you will find fascinating information one each person. Information such as name, birth date and place, often who their parents are, their schooling details, qualifications, even where they lived, as well as their working life history. Also included is information of if the person was married and had children.

This publication is a goldmine of information, and now that it is available on a two CD-ROM set, which is fully searchable – using this publication has never been easier.
