'[The] Sydney Mail, the weekly companion to the Sydney Morning Herald, was published 1860-1938. Like its rival the Australian Town and Country Journal, it was popular with both country and city readers, and combined general news with agricultural, pastoral, mining, sporting and literary features and included illustrations.'

We tell of its origin and early days, and of the origin and history of the firm of John Fairfax & Sons which for so long has carried it on. We give...an account of the Herald's record of Australian life over a period of great changes, and of astounding growth; in short, over the period of the rise of the Australian nation from infancy to manhood. Such a record, traced in the files of a great daily journal, it is hard to surpass either for comprehensive accuracy or for picturesqueness and intimacy. And finally we deal with the Herald of to-day; its achievements, its status, and its method of work.' (Source: Foreword)
