New Zealand or Recollections of It
New Zealand or Recollections of It
Markham, Edward
in 1834 the Regency buck Edward Markham spent eight and a half months in New Zealand, first in the Hokianga district and later in the Bay of Islands. On returning to England he compiled his 'Recollections' of the wild and distant country of which he had been a temporary resident. Markham had little education and few literary gifts, but he described his experiences with unusual candour and left memorable, if irreverent, portraits of such figures as James Busby and F.E. Manning. For over half a century his manuscript has lain in the Alexander Turnbull Library, Wellington, contributing its quota of fact and error to works on New Zealand history. - from the inside cover.
