Not exactly bedtime reading, but a collector's item generally only found in library and museum collections.
From the Foreword:
"The publication of this Gazetteer fulfils a need which has been obvious for many years. In any country, the collection and recording of a comprehensive list of place names is an essential task".
In pre Personal Computer/Internet days, this volume was compiled by typing compiled handlists of names (from previously published maps) onto tape, which were then punch-carded, sorted and processed by the offices of Treasury.

First column: Name of the Feature
Second column: Descriptive code using a maximum of four letters eg ISLD, LAKE, MINE, HILL
Third column: The NZ Map series number
Fourth column: Sheet No. based on North or South Island grid system
Fifth column: Grid reference to nearest 1000 yds
Sixth column: Latitude to nearest minute
Seventh column: Longitude to nearest minute
