Old New Zealand: Being Incidents of Native Customs and Character in the Old Times by Frederick Edward Maning (1812 - 1883).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project: https://librivox.org/old-new-zealand-by-frederick-edward-maning/
Introduction to Old New Zealand
Philip Steer

Victoria University February 2004

Frederick Edward Maning is best known as an author, but he was also at times a trader and a judge of the Native Land Court. He was born in Dublin, Ireland on 5 July 1811 or 1812 and immigrated to Tasmania with his family in 1823. He lived in New Zealand from 1833 until 1882, when ill health forced him to seek medical care in England. He died in London on 25 July 1883, but was buried in New Zealand later that year. His Old New Zealand: A Tale of the Good Old Times (1863) is one of the few pre-twentieth century New Zealand literary texts that have not descended into obscurity with passing time. Historian Peter Gibbons describes it as perhaps one of the best known and most widely read of all works on early New Zealand and it has often been reprinted.

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

This book is part of a series published during the time of the Maori wars and after the signing of the treaty of Waitangi and fairly well known in New Zealand even today. I would love to read more from this series eventually. I have this book in printed form published 1863. The version on Project Gutenberg seems to be a newer version - it says posted 2010 in the description but with no reference to the original publishing date. The title also differs from my book and what is online. Likewise, I am not sure I will be allowed to use Philip Steer's introduction written in 2004.

Note: I am currently working on another project and do not intend to start immediately on this project which is why I have put the intended completion date to May 2017

Looks interesting. I hadn't realised how little I knew about actual Maori history and lifestyle as distinct from ferocious cannibals of Jules Verne till I listened to Heke's war.
I'll set it up later . When you say you have this book in printed form is it an actual printed pre 1923 book or a facsimile ?

It's an old paperback. I guess I had better read from the Gutenberg though as that is what is available.

thanks Anne, how exciting. Can't wait to get started. Probably in a month or so after I finish the James Cook book.

Oh - I meant to ask - is the book on Hone Heke's war a librivox one? I did a search on both Librivox and Audible and didn't find it. Would love to listen to it too - one it is fascinating history and secondly it may help me with pronunciation of some of the names and places.

Iceland - I'm green with envy :mrgreen: . I'm off to FNQ (Far north Queensland) for a couple of weeks in July - still sorting out internet access but hope to have it.

I'll move us over to going Solo and things will happen when they happen :D

We have had a server problem viewtopic.php?f=12&t=62490
Any files and posts made in that time were lost. The MW shows the only files I have for this project - if any are missing you will need to reupload and post the links , If everything is fine could you just post so I can cross you off my list
