'Fox's History of Queensland' is similar to the Cyclopedias that were published for most states of Australia around the beginning of the 20th Century. These (including Fox's) are a vast resource of historical and biographical information - consisting of information on the people, towns, industries, professional, commercial and social institutions and much more. 'Fox's History of Queensland' is the largest of these publications and is extremely rare to find copies.
This comprehensive Queensland resource includes information ranging from flora and fauna to industry, from geology and history to politics as well as information relevant to the day on schools, hospitals, infrastructure and farming. It includes a large section on the major towns and regions and homesteads throughout Queensland as well as a large number of biographies on influential and ordinary citizens throughout the community. The three volumes contain thousands of photographs and illustrations, a large number of these being photos of people as well as places, buildings, and scenes from the past.
This CD set includes searchable facsimile images of the entire three volumes of 'Fox's History of Queensland' and is an essential resource for anyone interested in the history of that state.
