This is an auction for THE DISCOVERY OF NEW ZEALAND, by J C Beaglehole.

Originally published in 1939 as one of the "New Zealand Centennial Surveys", this is the "thoroughly revised" edition published in 1961. The author also "added to it slightly where this could be done with advantage".

"In this book Dr J C Beaglehole describes with his usual vivacity the successive stages by which New Zealand was made known to the outside world. This is the first time this exciting phase of our history has been treated in a single book. Here are collected accounts of the voyages of the half-legendary Maori navigators, of Tasman's brief, tragic visit, of Cook's masterly inspection of the country and its people, and of the French navigator, the scholarly Dumont d'Urville, who filled some of the gaps left by Cook and carried out important scientific observations. And there are other men whose connection with the story should be known to all New Zealand readers. The book is fully illustrated with plates and maps."
