LANG, John Dunmore

Regular price $50.00 Sale

John Dunmore Lang (1799 - 1878), Australian Presbyterian clergyman, writer, politician and activist, is best known as the first prominent advocate of an independent Australian republic. His voluminous writings delved into other topics, however, as can be seen from this interesting volume, first published in 1834. There seems to be little linguistic, archaeological or ethnographic data to suggest the Polynesians were the first inhabitants of the Americas. Sabin 38867.
