"The guiding object is to place on record the history of those Native lands in the Provinces of Wellington and Nelson which were set apart by the New Zealand Company in 1840 as reserves for the benefit of the 'aboriginal chiefs, their tribes and heirs for ever.' The history of the New Zealand Company's reserved 'tenths' is bound up in the history of the New Zealand Company, which in turn forms an important chapter in the history of New Zealand. The man who planned this system of Native reserves was the man who founded the New Zealand Company and forced the British Government into annexing New Zealand - that great colonizer, Edward Gibbon Wakefield." - from the Preface. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall
