Notes of a Journey from Taranaki to Mokau, Taupo, Rotomahana, Tarawera and Rangitikei
In 1858, S Percy Smith walked from New Plymouth overland to Mokau, Taupo, Rotomahana, Rangitikei and north to Wanganui. He travelled with F Murray, J McKellar, A Standish and W Hursthouse. His reminiscences were later published.
This copy consist of a photocopy of the published item which Percy Smith has signed and presented as special thanks to M A Crompton 'in remembrance of her kindness in correcting the "proofs" of this pamphlet'. The printed account finishes as the travellers reach Wanganui, however this copy also contains a handwritten account of the journey from Wanganui to their respective homes in New Plymouth.
The reminiscences are illustrated and include maps and plans.
