This is an auction for THE WHALING JOURNAL OF CAPTAIN W B RHODES 1836-1838.

"This journal, by the pioneer of a family of notable New Zealand pastoralists, is of double interest, both as a narrative of the hardy and dangerous life of the whalemen of 120 years ago and as a documentary of an important phase in early New Zealand history. Captain Rhodes had to deal with a mutinous crew in Lyttelton Harbour in 1836, assisted in protecting settlers in the Bay of Islands during Maori unrest in 1837, and observed the crusading wars of the first king of Tonga. The Journal has been edited by C R Straubel, whose introduction summarises the history of whaling in this part of the Pacific."

Hardback 1954.
