New Zealand Shipwrecks 1795-1975
by C.W.N.Ingram

This is the fifth 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.

Where new information has become available, it has been incorporated in the text. The period 1971-75 is, of course, now covered for the first time, and the book thus records a total of about 2,000 shipping casualties over a period of 180 years.

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.
