Narrative of a voyage to New Zealand, performed in the years 1814 and 1815, in company with the Rev. Samuel Marsden by John Liddiard Nicholas( Book )

3 editions published in 1817 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Liddiard Nicholas (1784-1868), a London iron-founder, arrived in New South Wales in 1813 but rather than develop his business, he accompanied Samuel Marsden on a journey to New Zealand from November 1814 to March 1815 that established the first Christian mission to the Maoris. This two-volume book, first published in 1817 after Nicholas had returned to England, was widely successful, and was translated into Dutch and German in 1819. Based on Nicholas' journal, kept throughout his voyage, it tells the story of the missionaries' efforts but focuses particularly on Nicholas' observations of the Maoris and reflects his desire to share knowledge of a 'people so little known to Europeans, and at the same time so ... interesting'. Nicholas pays careful attention to the customs, personalities, and relationships unique to different communities, and in Volume 1 outlines and highlights the relationships he himself developed with the Maoris

Memoirs of the life and labours of the Rev. Samuel Marsden, of Paramatta, senior chaplain of New South Wales : and of his early connexion with the missions to New Zealand and Tahiti by Samuel Marsden( Book )

4 editions published between 1857 and 1858 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Revd Samuel Marsden (1765-1838) was an influential religious figure in Australia, New Zealand and Tahiti. Educated at St John's College, Cambridge, and having spent time in Australia as a missionary to convicts and aborigines, from 1814 until his death he worked as a missionary to the Maori in New Zealand. First published in 1858, this biography, which uses Marsden's own letters and memoirs by friends and colleagues to explore his life and work, edited by the historian J. B. Marsden (1803-70) who was not in fact related to his subject. Vivid and anecdotal, the work reveals Marsden's strong religious beliefs and his dedication to the welfare of the war-town native peoples, even though his activities were not always popular. The editorial commentary sets Marsden's work within a social and historical context, and the study concludes with some appendices documenting his lasting influence on New Zealand and Tahiti."--Back cover
