This is an auction for TRAVELLING TO NEW ZEALAND: AN OXFORD ANTHOLOGY, edited by Lydia Wevers.

“TRAVELLING TO NEW ZEALAND: AN OXFORD ANTHOLOGY is the first comprehensive collection of writing by travellers to New Zealand. It illustrates the joys and tedium, perils and pleasures of travelling to and within New Zealand since the early 19th century. Lydia Wevers presents diverse glimpses of what New Zealand might have looked, smelled, and tasted like to a visitor from another time and place. Humorous and descriptive accounts of travel on and off New Zealand roads are included, as are those of sojourns in hotels and bush inns, and travel by ship in settler ships and tourist ships from the 1880s to the 1930s. Particularly engrossing are accounts of the cultural encounter with the Maori and the Grand Tours of the 1880s, taking in the astounding beauty of New Zealand's scenery. Indeed, this anthology proves that every traveller has a story to tell. Scathing attacks on New Zealand as a `rough, rude, uncivilised, pretentious and uncomfortable' find space next to heartfelt declarations of having found a `regular paradise'.”
