Significance
Unfortunately the donor of this official publication is not yet known. Further research needs to be undertaken on the purpose, history and usage of this Local Government Act 1874 (Victoria), with amendments to Dec 1884 (its date of publication). If it can be traced back to a local Ararat councillor or personality, then this would enhance its significance (although the Geelong address on the flyleaf would suggest a Geelong origin). If the publication is now a rare item, this too would enhance its significance, which would apply Victoria-wide.
