Abstract

Sir James Hector (1834 - 1907) was a geologist and explorer, and from 1865 was appointed director of the Geological Survey and Colonial Museum in Wellington. He made extensive explorations and geological surveys of both the North and South islands. These two journals contain notes and sketches from expeditions in the Northland district in 1866 and 1874. The name Rawhiti appears on the above sketch. Unfortunately no names appear in the journal notes for the sketch below.
