Opis: Australia in Its Physiographic and Economic Aspects (Classic Reprint) - Taylor Griffith

Excerpt from Australia in Its Physiographic and Economic Aspects
The present work is merely an Introduction to the study of the Commercial Geography of Australia. I have endeavoured to avoid bare statistics, and, humbly following the plan of Mackinder, Davis, and other modern geographers, to lay the most stress on the physical controls which govern the industrial conditions in our Island Continent.
There has been no attempt to give an exhaustive account either of the physiographic or of the economic aspects of Australia. This would not be advisable for several reasons; but the main industries in each State, especially such as are characteristic of Australian environment, have been chosen for fuller treatment. In dealing with them, their relation to Geology and Climate (more particularly to rainfall) is discussed, as well as their distribution. In a few cases some brief technological notes are added. A glance at the list of sections will show that some States must be more fully treated than others. New South Wales is most important for Wool and Coal; Queensland for Cattle and Sugar; Victoria for Irrigation and other problems of Intense Cultivation; South Australia for Wheat, and so on.
I have endeavoured to acknowledge material borrowed from other works almost wholly Government publications - in the text, but I am under great obligation to Professor David, F. R. S. (University of Sydney); to Mr. H. C. L. Anderson, M. A. (Intelligence Department, N. S. W.); Mr. R. Mackay (Public Works Department, N. S. W.); Mr. D. J.Gordon of Adelaide, S. A.; Mr. D. J. Mahony and Mr. A. S. Kenyon. Especially do I wish to record my indebtedness to Dr. A. J. Herbertson, Professor of Geography in the University of Oxford; and to the Yearbooks of Mr. G. H. Knibbs.
In 1907 were given - what I believe to be - the first Australian University lectures on Economic Geography. As a result of this course the first edition of this book was published in 1911, and I first saw it in print in Antarctica in 1912.
