Seven prize certificates from Geelong College, Melbourne, Australia pasted to endpapers, flyleaves and verso of frontispiece. The certificates were presented to Alexander Charles Sutherland (1870-1941) in his final year in 1885, when he was Dux of the school. Sutherland later studied engineering and went to South Africa, first as an engineer and later served in the Anglo-South African War. He remained in South Africa and died at Cape Town in 1941.
