“The Picturesque Atlas was designed to give a graphic and summarised conception of Australasian history and life from the days of the earliest Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch, English and French navigators to the 1880s, embracing such salient events as the landing of Captain Cook in 1770, the discoveries of voyagers, explorers and pioneer missionaries; the founding of the different colonies; the establishment of representative government and d the marvellous political, commercial and social development which characterises the people of Australia.
Over 700 illustrations adorning these pages were engraved on steel and wood by the best engravers procurable in America and Australia.”
