Anthony Trollope, the famous English novelist whose books illuminate virtually every aspect of late nineteenth century England also wrote travel books. In 1873 he published "Australia and New Zealand" in two volumes and in 1874 the work was re-issued in four sections of which this is one.

This book includes descriptions of various places in both Tasmania and Victoria. These are quite detailed and usually start with the founding or naming of the place, and continue through its early history. A great read for all those interested in early colonial history in Tasmania and Victoria. As a bonus there is also a detailed "Map of the Province of Victoria 1873".
