Narrative of a Residence in New Zealand
Journal of a Residence in Tristan da Cunha
By Augustus Earle

Edited by E. H. McCormick

Augustus Earle (1793--1838) was known to his contemporaries as `the wandering artist'. Born in London of American parents, he travelled widely in Europe, North Africa, the two Americas, and Oceania, sketching and painting wherever he went. In 1832 he published the Narrative of his experiences in New Zealand, one of the best descriptions of that country in the years before Colonization, together with the Journal of his stay on Tristan da Cunha where he was stranded in 1824. The present edition, the only complete version since the book first appeared, contains the fullest account of Earle's life yet published and an introduction based on missionary records and other manuscript sources.

The book is fully illustrated with monochrome and colour prints of Earle's own paintings, many here reproduced for the first time.
