Facsimile of original including large map in colour. This important 19th century gazetteer contains 'the most recent and accurate information on every place in the colony' - as it was in 1866.

It contains a wealth of information for historians and genealogists, and will interest the general reader as well. There are entries for towns and villages, lakes, rivers and creeks, islands, bays, hills and mountains, counties, hundreds, district councils, electoral districts, stations, runs and other localities and features. It often gives latitude and longitude, populations, proximity to other towns, local industries, services such as coach and mail runs, hotels, churches, schools and much more. Local residents are sometimes mentioned.

An invaluable guide for all who are researching in South Australia.

Below is an image showing the map that is included (note that it is the folded version of the map).

    Outstanding value. A great insight into SA at that time. I will enjoy reading it all. I love the map too.

    This is extremely interesting to anyone with family living in South Australia in 1866, and indeed anyone with an interest in settlement and place names at the time.
    I have not had time to read it all yet, but hope to find exactly where my g-grandfather lived then, as it records the names of all landholders & leaseholders.
