Letters to Bundall 1872-1879 and Lena Cooper's Manuscript
The Gold Coast's regional history is conveyed through the collected letters of Julius Holland, a prominent and successful 19th-century businessman. A narrative by Derrick, a journalist and lecturer in Aboriginal Studies, links the letters to the manuscript of Cooper (1864-1965) who, as a keen amateur historian, traced the history of the Nerang region in 1943, from the time of the first appearance of white men in the area. Illustrated with photos and indexed.
