Description

Another quality 70s reproduction by Austaprint (Hampstead Gardens SA, 1978), The Cyclopedia of South Australia is a vast resource of historical and biographical information, with wonderful photographs of old towns, factories, shops and shopping centres. This facsimile of the 1907 and 1909 editions is a must for genealogists.

We recently sold a superior copy for $300, so, whilst this is still a very good copy, we must outline the faults to account for the much cheaper price tag:

Both volumes have mottled white boards and a few marks to the page blocks; vol 2 has a cracked front hinge but remains intact. Both volumes are internally excellent and, despite having been used extensively for research, retain a very good appearance.

We also have two sets of the first edition available – one is a very good set with some minor damage to the leather boards ($750) and the other has had the spines removed entirely but remains solidly intact ($225).
