This second Tasmanian Cyclopedia is a wide ranging historical and biographical overview of the state in 1931 - the people, towns, industries, professional, commercial and social institutions and much more.

The Cyclopedia includes 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 set includes facsimile images of the entire 420 page original edition.

It is arranged as follows:

  • Introduction and historical sketch of Tasmania

Woven throughout are numerous biographies, many with photos

The entire text is searchable - names, places and any other words in the text. This will pick up many more names than are listed in useful, but limited index.

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