Published in 1889, this valuable book gives listings of pastoral landholders (owners or leasees) in New South Wales at the time, together with information on the property/ies they owned or leased.
Divided into three sections; the Eastern division, the Central division and the Western division, all containing information on the areas of land owned. Each pastoral holding includes the land district and county in which each pastoral holding is situated, the area in acres, the annual rent and licence fee and the rate per acre and per section for each leasehold and resumed area respectively together with the names of the registered pastoral holders of the crown. The information is detailed and includes the date of notification in the government gazette.
