This large book is a detailed history and account of the progress and culture of the well known gold mining area of Ballarat up to (and including) 1901. Fully titled 'Ballarat and District in 1901, a concise history of its rise, progress and present prosperity in its mining, engineering, agriculture, art, trade and manufactures', this book mainly focuses on the history of the industries in the area.

A large portion of the book consists of over 400 illustrations of buildings, people, monuments, gardens, mining illustrations, as well as natural features from the local area, which provide an insight into Ballarat as it was.

  1. not warned it was an expurgated version

    Posted by Unknown on 23rd Nov 2016

    I purchased this wonderful old book principally to see plate 132. I was therefore surprised and disappointed to find that this plate was one of just a few which were not included. There was no warning that this was an expurgated version and no reason given for its omission.
