This copy inscribed by the author to Francis J. S. Grace, whose bookplate is inside the front cover, presumably the son of the author. A fascinating four page (one piece of paper folded and written on both sides) letter is laid in at the Dedication page. The letter is to the author from Sir Anthony Home, the person to whom the book is dedicated. It appears that the son, to whom the book is inscribed, inherited the letter and taped it in. Sir Anthony Home was Surgeon General of the United Kingdom. The letter contains references to the Maori Wars. Teal green cloth with silver lettering on spine and front cover. Eight photographic illustrations (most of which are portraits). Author's gift inscription on half title page reads, Presented to Mrs. Frances S. Grace by the author, July 18, 1900" Personal library bookplate of Frances James Stanislaus Grace inside front cover. Portrait frontispiece with tissue guard. Illustrated. Color folding map present and in very good condition. 171pp., with Publisher's ads. Seven other illustrations complete. Two newspaper articles by author, Morgan S. Grace are attached at the Dedication page. The book has general wear, but no major flaws. A historically significant copy of and uncommon book.
