The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 41
Preface to the Second Edition
Preface to the Second Edition.
Since the issue of the First Edition of the Official Catalogue the Lists of Exhibits in each Court have been re-compiled, and subsequently carefully scrutinised by the respective Executive Commissioners or Superintendents, so that they are now correct. The List of the Austrian Exhibits, and those of Ceylon and Fiji, have also been received and added to those previously published. Considerable improvements have also been effected in the Fine Arts department, and, besides extended notices of the Royal Exhibits, there has been appended a full description of the subjects portrayed in the collection known as the Victoria Cross Gallery. The Official Catalogue, therefore, now contains a complete record of the numerous Exhibits displayed in The Melbourne International Exhibition.
