Included in the book are sections on the geographical, educational, scientific, and commercial aspects of Tasmania, covering chapters on the flora and fauna, mining, aboriginals, museums, agriculture, irrigation, health, infrastructure and government. There are several photos and illustrations scattered throughout the book.
