Nauru the small Pacific Coral island lying just sourh of the equator, has supplied high-grade phosphate to the outside worldfor almost the enture 20th century. Phosphate and Nauru seem to belong together as if the island had no history before the mine. But the impression is misleading. This unique collection of previously unpublished documents shows us a different, prephosphate Nauru -The Nauru of the late nineteenth century, when the Germans raised the flag and administered the island as part of their colonial posssessions in the tropical Pacific.
