"The incidents recorded in the following pages were noted down while fresh in his memory, and generally on the same day on which they occurred; they are presented to the reader in this state, which, while it ends to establish their accuracy, necessarily restricts the narrative to the simple and abrupt form of a journal." - from the Preface. [Bibliographical reference: c.f. Bagnall 1503 for the first edition - "Cruise [. . .] had time to record his impressions of the region and of Maori society during the climax of Hongi's influence and the intertribal wars. Contrasts to the tensions and brutalities come from not uncommon vignettes on more peaceful aspects of Maori character and activity."] ; 8vo. N° de ref. de la librería 14560
