New Zealand Shipwrecks 1795-1982
by C.W.N.Ingram

This is the sixth edition of a standard New Zealand work which was first published in 1936, revised and enlarged several times, and is now further revised and brought up to date.

This book now records a total of about 2,100 shipping casualties over a period of 187 years. The years 1976-82 are now covered for the first time and an appendix includes details on earlier shipwrecks which have only recently come to light.

New Zealand Shipwrecks is essentially a work of reference and is as complete and accurate as such a work should be. But it is also an eminently readable volume, containing many epic accounts of disasters in which courage, endurance and self-sacrifice were particularly evident. Lengthy reports are given of wrecks of unusual consequence or drama, such as the Orpheus, Elingamite, Manuka, Wairarapa, Wiltshire, Niagara, Wanganella, Kaitawa and Wahine: but the book also gives the essential detail of every known shipping loss, down to commercial fishing vessels.
