Early New Zealand Books

The early New Zealand Books Project is an initiative of the University of Auckland Library. It provides searchable texts of books published about New Zealand in the 19th century. The ENZPB is concentrated on the accounts of early travellers and British settlements, and is scanning books from its own collection. As of last year, 39 books are online but it plans to continue extending the collection. See Early New Zealand Books at:
