Description

First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper

The first edition of this work. A fascinating account of the history of the first Polynesian settler as they reached New Zealand. A very accurate and interesting read by A. W. Reed, a New Zealand publisher and writer, whose chosen field has always been Maori life and culture, as well as New Zealand's history.

From the library of Eric Kenneth Prentice Back. Kenn Back was a British meteorologist with the British Antarctic survey for many years. He spent eight winters in the Antarctic and is a descendent of Captain George Back. In addition, he served as base commander at Halley, Faraday and Rothera stations. His library collection was built over decades and highlights his love of polar exploration.
