    This CD contains the first seven monthly issues of "The Record and Trades' Register of the United Mercantile Society of Australasia Limited".

The society, which in 1887 "now numbers is membership in the thousands", was established to undertake operations as follows:

    • Debt collection for its members
    • Action, advice and consultation on members' business
    • filing bills of sale, liens on crops and wool, stock mortgages
    • registering of deeds
    • searches for probate etc

    The record of these and other activities is contained in the pages of this journal, which was issued free to members

    The main record is supplemented by further useful information:

    • a 35 page index to the first half year ending December 1887 - covering six of the seven issues in the volume. This index is described as a "complete record of all bills of sale, stock mortgages, liens on wool, crops, insolvencies, assignments, &c, &c ... for New South Wales, and the insolvencies, partnerships dissolved &c, for Queensland and Victoria.
    • a special trades register covering many businesses
    • advertisements for some of the leading businesses
    • a list of vessels that sailed form Sydney during October and November 1887 with details of rig, tonnage, master, destination, agent and date.
