Description:

No signatures. Some small bumps to lower edge of front board. No tears to dustjacket. Dustjacket protected in archival mylar cover. ; 327 pages. Illustrated. Page dimensions: 236 x 154mm. "[. . .] chronicles the various companies set up by would-be colonisers, culminating in the New Zealand Company, which was to send emigrants to the other side of the world, sometimes with no land ready for them to settle. From Du Burns's careful and scholarly work emerges a tale of ambition, intrigue, greed and folly. We learn of the true motives behind the high-sounding phrases, and of the fatal influence of the Wakefield brothers on the development of the colony - with far-teaching effects on relations between Maori and Pakeha as well as attitudes to the Treaty of Waitangi." - from dustjacket blurb. ; 8vo.
