Description

Published on the 150th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, this beautiful volume reproduces in full color the Album presented to Mrs. Hobson, the wife of New Zealand's first governor, when she left New Zealand in 1843 after the death of her husband. Including drawings, sketches, watercolors, and letters, the volume is supplemented with commentary on the Maori texts, a perceptive study of the artists who contributed to the Album, and a lively account of the Hobsons' life in New Zealand.show more
