This is an auction for THE IMPERIAL ALBUM OF NEW ZEALAND SCENERY, in two large hardback volumes, published in 1896.

From Early New Zealand Photographers and Their Successors:

"Edmund Wheeler and his son Edmund Richard Wheeler had a photographic studio in Christchurch, established in 1863... The New Zealand Scenery Publishing & Co. began the publication of the 'The Imperial Album of New Zealand Scenery' with photographs by Wheeler & Son in 1896. This was published over 12 months in 24 parts for 1s 6d each, or 24 shillings for the whole series. Each part contained sixteen photo-engravings, nine inches by seven. The printers were McKee & Gamble of Palmerston ?North. The photographs included New Zealand towns, harbours, mountains, lakes, fiords and glacier scenery and pictures of of industrial, social and rural life. The first proof copy was sent to the Queen..."

[Single parts from this series are currently being offered for sale at $25-40. A full set of 24 parts must surely be worth much more than the $99 I am asking for these two bound volumes.]

390 pages.

Photographs throughout.

There is some water damage to the last two or three pages, which will have happened before the volume was bound (and may have been the reason why it was bound.) Otherwise, good condition.

The cost of shipping is:
