Melbourne, McCarron, Bird & Co., Printers, 1917, 1914 and 1914.

Thick foolscap folio, three volumes, xvi, 504, [2] (plain red paper divider), xvi, 480; and 2296 (total for Volumes 2 and 3) pages with thousands of graphs, tables and diagrams plus 14 maps (several folding).

Red or maroon stippled cloth a little marked, scuffed and mottled (more so on one rear cover), with minimal wear to some corners; endpapers offset; inner hinges of the third volume cracked (but the binding remains sound); a very good set (internally excellent).

The first formal Census taken since Federation. Knibbs explains in the preface to his report that its publication was delayed for three years because of the 'disorganisation of duties which resulted from the war and the work involved in the taking of the War Census of 1915'. Tipped in on the front flyleaf of the first volume is a large folding plate depicting the members of the Sixth Commonwealth War Loan Conference in Sydney, 21 February 1918 (evidently removed from another publication).
