5. Children of wild Australia by Pitts, Herbert (1914) 136 pages
It is a bright sunny land where those children live, but in many ways a far less pleasant land to live in
than our own. The country often grows very parched and bare, the grass dies, the rivers begin to dry up,
and the poor little children of the wilderness have
great difficulty in getting food.
6. Handbook of South Australia by Gordon, David J. (David John) Ryan, Victor H (1914) 342 pages
'THE British Association for the Advancement of Science having-, at the invitation of the Commonwealth,
resolved to hold its annual meeting of 1914 in Australia, the Government of South Australia has authorised and
published this Official Handbook of the State.
While the main purpose of the book is to supply to visiting members of the Association information concerning
the progress and resources of South Australia, a limited number of scientific articles which bear more or less directly
upon the industrial and economic development of the State, or which convey local information not readily obtainable elsewhere,
have also been included.

WITH ILLUSTRATIONS AND MAPS
The material for this book was collected in the Northern Territory during the years 1913 and 1914. I am deeply indebted to
the Administrator of the Northern Territory and Mrs. Gilruth, who made it possible for me to study life in Darwin, and also to
see something of the more outlying parts of the Territory, such as the country round the Darwin to Pine Creek Railway Line, the
Daly River, the Alligator River, and the northern coast as far as the Roper River in
the Gulf of Carpentaria.

Duke of Edinburgh visit to the colony of Victoria, Australia (1868) 242 pages
So important and auspicious an event as the first visit of a son of Queen Victoria to the Australian Colonies, deserves to be inscribed on
the brightest page of our Colonial History. It is not however attempted, in the following narrative, to anticipate the work of the historian, or
to weaken the interest in the publication of the travels and experiences of his Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh, which will probably
be undertaken by some members of the Royal party on their return to England.

13. Letters from Australia by Martineau, John (1869) 236 pages
THE following Letters were most of them written in Australia in 1867, and were published in the Spectator
in the course of that and the following year. Some are reprinted without alteration, others have been
added to and altered, and others are new. No attempt has been made to mould them into a
continuous or complete account either of the past history or present condition of the three colonies
which they endeavour to describe. Those of the colonies which are old enough to possess a history
have had it already written.
14. The Aborigines of Australia by Sadleir, Richard (1883) 94 pages
Shortly after my arrival in the Colony in 1826, I was appointed to a Commission of Inquiry into the state of the Aborigines. Previous to that, martial law had been proclaimed about Bathurst, where the blacks had been committing serious aggressions
under Monday, their chief.
My journey, extending over 1,600 miles, occupied six months. I lived partly with these people, so as to ascertain their number, language, habits, &c., and proposed a scheme of reserves, as in Canada, a border police, and missionary education, but the
cost, £6,000 per annum, was considered too much, and my suggestion was therefore
not acted on.
I was subsequently examined, together with Mr. Robinson and the Rev. Mr. Threlkeld, before the Committee of the Legislative Council, about 1837, from which much information was acquired. The present work is part of a largo manuscript, and I have thought it a favourable
opportunity to publish it, now that fresh interest is awakened about these people, devoting any profits to the Missions lately established within New South Wales.
15. The coming of the British to Australia, 1788 to 1829 by Lee, Ida (1906) 390 pages
Australia has reached an interesting stage in her history. She has completed the first five years of her Hfe as a Commonwealth, a sufficiently long period for her to gain a consciousness of her duties and her destinies as a united nation. The volume
of her annals up to the ist of January, 1901, while she was still composed of separate Colonies, is finished. But it is not closed and done with. On the contrary, its early chapters have acquired a new meaning and value. Australians should look, backwards
as well as forwards. They will find in the records of the discovery and settlement of their
country guidance and inspiration for the future.
16. The early federation movement of Australia by Allin, Cephas Daniel (1907) 452 pages
It is especially appropriate that the nineteenth century, the history of which has been dominated by the spirit of nationalism,
and which has witnessed the important federal unions of Switzerland, Canada and Germany, should also see its last days crowned
by the unification of the segregated colonies of Australia into a strong federation under the flag of Great Britain. The federal
state promises to be as distinctly the dominant type of modern governmental organization as the city state was of ancient
Greece. For this reason alone, the Australian federation is especially worthy of study, as the latest product of the spirit of
17. Australia Discovery and exploration by Lang, W. H, Lambert, George (1908) 350 pages
Australia's geological romance For you in England, or in any of the older countries of the world, there need never be any lack of material for romance. It is at your very doors. Your house itself may be built upon some spot of earth hallowed
by remembrances of the past, sacred to some brave deed. All over England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales there are few places that are not made familiar by the pages of history, and endeared by what we now call romance. To those who first used it, the
old word "romance" did not convey the same meaning that it does to us. Behind the words "a
knight," "a horse," "a fairy," "a girl," long ago there lay romance ; and those were the days of brave
deeds and stout blows.

20. Discoveries in Australia Vol1 & Vol 2 by Stokes, John Lort (1846)
Volume 1 596 pages Volume 2 608 pages
Among the various, valuable, and important publications of the Royal Danish Society of Northern Antiquaries, that which has created the greatest general interest in the literary world, is the able and elaborate work of Professor Rafn, which came out in Copenhagen in the year 1837, under the title of "Antiquitates American.T. sive Scriptores Septentriotiales rerum Ante-
Columhianarum in America."
This interesting publication, the fruit of great literary labour, and extensive research, clearly shews that the eastern coast of North America was discovered and colonized by the Northmen more than five hundred years
before the reputed discovery of Columbus.
21. History of Australian bushranging Ben Hall to the Kelly gang (1900) 434 pages
by Charles White
The early history of bushranging in Australia will never be written, for the facts have never been recorded.
Limited though the colony was in extent, its literature — even its journalism — was still more limited. Moreover, the first men who "took the bush" were neither important nor interesting enough to obtain more than a passing mention in those Governors'
despatches which are our chief authorities for early colonial history. Owing to the stringent military rule during the first years of convict settlement, the unknown character of the country, and the absence of prey in the shape of men with money or other possessions (the aborigines being the only occupants of the soil outside the properly formed settlements), those
who were called bushrangers then were simply men who had broken away from their gangs in the hope of
escaping from the torture of labour under Government.
22. Primitive hunters of Australia by Hambly, Wilfrid Dyson (1936) 90 pages
Throughout the continent the physical appearance of the Australian aborigines tends toward uniformity, a fact
which gives further support to the evidence of long isolation as afforded by a study of the animals and plants.
A mixing of races of different physical types produces many varieties, but, on the contrary, isolation favors
the production of one specialized species.
23. The Commonwealth of Australia by Wise, B. R. (Bernhard Ringrose), (1909) 436 pages
There are many histories of Australia and many descriptions of its scenery and customs ; but no one has presented a general view of the Commonwealth, both as a country and a nation, as Mr. Bryce, for instance, has done for
the United States.
Yet Australia, from her geographical position,—if for no other and more sentimental reason,—must always 03 be of interest to the Empire. Dominating the Pacific, and placed astride of the trade-route between America and China, she is not only the outlying frontier of England towards the Far East—which is the Empire's most vulnerable side—but she is also the ultimate heir of Java,
Sumatra, and the Celebes, in the event of the absorption
by Germany of Holland.
24. The Real Australia by Buchanan, Alfred (1907) 336 pages
The object of a novel is, as a general rule, to reflect life and temperament in a selected environment. For various reasons it
has become the fashion to achieve this end
by indirect means.
The present work is merely an attempt, and an obviously imperfect one, to do directly what the travelled and cosmopolitan novelist
does in an indirect way. That is to say, it is an attempt to mirror in some fashion the social life, the literary life, the individual life,
the present-day life, of a developing continent
and four millions of people.
