Descripción

This was the author's sixth title relating to the establishment and settlement of the Nelson Province in NZ. It enhanced his reputation as a respected local historian. The fist of his books "Footprints" told the story of how the back country of Nelson was developed."Footprints Too" was sub-titled "Further glimpses into the History of Nelson Province" and in his introduction Newport wrote that much of the information it contained had not previously been recorded. That infiormation is presented in two parts; the first dealing with communications, shipping, surveying, roads, telegraph and other developments while the second relates to the areas in and around the Mount Arthur region.Topics covered are many and varied ranging from farming, sawmilling, apple and tobacco growing, the natural history, to mining for gold and asbestos, while opening with an account of early Maori settlement and industries. With 28 chapters "Footprints Too" certainly provides much more than "glimpses" of pioneering life and work in Nelson province. This copy has the author's ink signature on the title page. First edition of 1978, 200 pages includuing sources and index, 43 b/w illustrations, mainly photos with some art, eight maps.Grey hard covers with gilt spine titles are NF, ditto the text block, no ownership insctiptions. Green toned art DJ is VG with some surface wear to front, few chips and short tears. Size: 23cm By 15cm. N° de ref. de la librería 005116
