Comment: 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.
