      I too used too have this dictionary, mine got destroyed . i always hoped such an important part of history was not lost. I am relieved to find another still remains.
      and pleased your intent seems to be to keep it well. So much of aboriginal language sits afront the door to extinction.What a magic minature this for sharing
