This is an auction for THESE ANTIPODES: A NEW ZEALAND ALBUM 1814-1854 by Shirley Maddock.

Photographs by Don Whyte.

"In her earlier books Islands of the Gulf and Far As A Man May Go Shirley Maddock has displayed her extraordinary ability to get under the skin of early visitors to New Zealand and evoke refreshingly, intimately and accurately the New Zealand of last century. These Antipodes is her most ambitious work to date. In 328 pages of skilfully chosen excerpts from the writings of a variety of visitors to New Zealand, interspersed with her own lively commentary, she brings the past to life in a manner never attempted before by a New Zealand historian. She quotes not only Abel Tasman, Cook and the other well known explorers, but missionaries, whalers, pakeha Maoris, and many other commentators on early New Zealand never published before. Numerous black and white illustrations accompany the text, and there are twenty-eight pages of exquisite colour, from early paintings to a rich assembly of modern colour photographs by Don Whyte."
