A fine copy of the rare First Edition complete with its original marble-patterned endpapers. Text printed within a red-lined border. A facsimile reprint of this fine illustrated work was produced as a limited numbered edition in 1967, a copy of which is here included. Total 2 vols. Not in Hocken. Rare. Comprising a series of late nineteenth century views of cities and towns and natural wonders of New Zealand, including the truly spectacular folding chromolithograph of the 1886 eruption of Mount Tarawera, located near Rotorua in the North Island. The lithographs are by William Potts, prepared in the main from photographs. Included is a brief history of New Zealand by local journalist and politician Edward Wakefield (1845-1924), "whose literary ability places him in the front rank of New Zealand writers". Each of the plates is accompanied by an explanatory text, by Wakefield and others. Wakefield is also the author of New Zealand after Fifty Years, which was published in the same year.
