A typed monograph by the author who was a Friend of the Wellington Museum. Inscription on title page.

With time and assistance from the Cape Archives and the Wellington Museum, the author has produced a factual account with references to many original sources. Chapters include the discovery and construction of the pass; the costs involved; the convict system; history and sites of interest and a biographical sketch of Andrew Geddes Bain. 53 Pages.
