Abstract

Two of the three copies in Special Collections of Augustus Hamilton’s ground-breaking publication on Maori art have hand-painted designs running along the head, tail and fore-edge, which repeat the gilt-stamped motif on the front cover. The round-backed spine carries the title and other gilt designs. The Dunedin firm of Fergusson and Mitchell not only printed this large book, but they were the binders, as evidenced from a ripped binder’s label pasted on the front marbled endpaper.
