The cumulative issues of the first nine parts of this highly regarded
and much sought chronicle of Bendigo. This set of nine parts comes
with the RARE index to the first eight parts compiled by Sandra
Greenwell. The Annals of Bendigo are essenyially a summary of
news items as appearing in the Bendigo Advertiser newspaper since
its commencement of publication in 1853. The Advertiser was the
first newspaper published on the Victorian Goldfields. The value
of a work of reference such as the Annals depends largely upon
access to an adequate index. Hence the index which was published
in 1988 has become a very sort after and rare after item.
