The Story Of The ‘Monster Mine’ [Burra]


Out of stock


A comprehensive study of one of South Australia’s earliest successful settlements, Ian Auhl’s heavily researched work on “The Burra Burra Mine & Its Townships 1845-1877” is impressive.

Detailing the businesses and personalities behind the startup and success of the mine, Auhl expands his work to coincide with the growth of townships, a gold rush, politics and even art (there are a number of plates devoted to work by ST Gill amid others).

Our copy is in excellent condition with a calligraphic presentation on the front endpaper (as pictured).

First edition (1986), published by Investigator Press.
