This is an auction for AT HOME IN NEW ZEALAND: AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF EVERYDAY THINGS BEFORE 1865 by Alison & L R Drummond.

“AT HOME IN NEW ZEALAND is a remarkable and detailed record of life – and minutiae of day-to-day living – in New Zealand from 1814 to 1865. Grouping her material under the five main headings, FIRST THINGS, FOOD, SHELTER, CLOTHING, FAR FROM HOME, Alison Drummond gives a revealing picture of the ingenuity, the hardships, and the sometimes incongruous luxuries of life away from Britain in the early nineteenth century. The fascinating miscellany of extracts from the contemporary journals and letters at the end of each section gives a vivid and first-hand picture of the differing attitudes and experiences of the settlers. Most of the many illustrations in the book are drawings specially made by Mrs Drummond’s husband, L R Drummond, from the original objects in museums and private houses throughout New Zealand.”
