This history is similar to the Cyclopedias that were published for most states of Australia around the beginning of the 20th Century, which are a vast resource of historical and biographical information consisting of information on the local people, towns, industries, professional, commercial and social institutions, and much more. 'Fox's History of Queensland' is the largest of these publications and it is extremely rare to find copies. It includes a large section on the major towns, regions, and homesteads throughout Queensland, as well as a large number of biographies on influential and ordinary citizens throughout the community. The three volume set contains thousands of photographs and illustrations, a large number of these being photos of people as well as places, buildings, and scenes from the past.
The information in this description comes from the Gould Genealogy and History catalogue.
