GRAHAMSTOWN REFLECTED.

O'Meara, Emily., Greaves, Duncan., & Tyler, Lyn.

Albany Museum. Grahamstown 1995.. A Mint unread copy ex-publisher.. Printed card wraps. 159pp illustrated colour photos. 4to. Text by local author Emily O'Meara and photographs by local photographer Duncan Greaves. A lavishly illustrated look at Grahamstown, original city of the 1820 Settlers. The only book available that covers the city in such detail. Not a formal history, rather a topical record of past and present that misses little if anything of note. There are few dedicated histories of Grahamstown, Joy Collier's "Frontier Post" (1961) being one, and this fills the gap for a look at the city's heritage environment as we see it today.
