A College in the Wattles. Hahndorf and its Academy

Hahndorf, The Author, 1989.

Quarto, 542 pages with numerous illustrations plus endpaper maps of Hahndorf (1860, and 1890-1900).

Gilt-decorated synthetic cloth very slightly marked and scuffed; an excellent copy.

Founded in 1857, the College 'quickly prospered to be one of the leading schools in the colony. For 55 years it provided high class tuition'. Not your average school history: this volume contains nearly 250 pages of biographies of over 700 old scholars and staff members, an extraordinary feat when one realises many of the entries are potted family histories.
