This book contains a selection of engravings which originally appeared in various New Zealand regional newspapers during the 1860s, '70s and '80s. Unpaginated includes index. Includes 118 engravings (in some cases, several separate illustrations are presented as a cohesive group ie 1 engraving). Introduction + explanatory text with each illustration.

"The engravings which depict news events were based on artists' impressions which in turn were based on descriptive news reports and/or recollections of participants or eye witnesses. Very often they reflect an over-enthusiastic imagination and emphasis on the dramatic. On the other hand, the majority of the remaining engravings were based on actual photographs or sketches, and work by such well known artists as Nicholas Chevalier and John Gully often appeared.
