This beautiful and informative volume, inspired by the pioneering 1910 A and C Black book Australia, offers a new way of looking at the sights and social history of Australia in the first decade of the twentieth century.Every painting from the original book has been rescanned and enlarged, presenting them as they have not been seen for a hundred years. Opposite each painting is a page containing full-colour images relating to the painting, from period maps and postcards to paintings and railway tickets, together with a text placing the painting in its contemporary context.The introduction written by Tony Hughes D'Aeth sets the historical scene for a young Australia, newly united from its constituent states and emerging as a major world nation.
