Established by an act of Parliament in 1834, it was a planned British province rather than a convict settlement. It was the first place in the world to grant universal suffrage and to allow women to run for parliament. It was one of the states that formed the Commonwealth of Australia in 1901. These volumes are from a series that ran from 1837 to 1957. Sweet & Maxwell, A Legal Bibliography of the British Commonwealth 6:81.
