1971 reprint previously published in the 1879, with a fold out drawing of Ta Whiao, also drawing of Rewi and a map of the Waikato District. Good condition. Dust jacket has some wear at the edges. Previous owner's signature on flyleaf.
The inside dust cover description of "The Waikato War 1863-1864" has an insightful review of the book: "...originally published in 1879, with no attempt to provide a balanced view: the author's bias is clearly evidenced and reflects the feeling of the day in a way that no modern author would emulate". Also, "...this rare and authentic account of one of the blacker periods of New Zealand history".
