New Zealand RARE cdv photo Capt Mair related Julius Haast signed 38cdvs and 1 cabinet phot and two maori unrelated photo
New Zealand lot 38cdvs 1 cabinet photo Capt Mair related family collection Julius Haast signed Maori Mohi te Ngu
This is for the whole lot of New Zealand 19th century photos cdvs, i think 38 cdvs many named and one cabinet photo ,needs time and research may be ideal for the National Library of New Zealand or similar.
Please numbers i have noted to these are my own REF when I was trying to keep much in order.
Includes Images Julius Haast which Haast has inscribed and sent to Capt Mair in 1887
Various other noted are:
Maori Mohi Te Ngu cdv inscribed back lived with George Grey on Kawhau[Island] this also has a circular Auckland Library cachet to back]George Grey gave many of his notes and photos to the Auckland Library for it’s open in 1877 and this was it appears of that,this came with the collection from overseas.
. This is Mohi Te Ngu, from the Auckland area, sadly Mohi Te Ngu is often misrepresented as Mohi Tawhai simply because they both share the same European name for ‘Moses’.[we thaank Tahi for his input on correctly identifying]
Two cdvs Judge and Mrs Kelso.?
Captain Dyer[my number7]
Men uniformed [my number3]
Alice Gill [Neice of Capt Mair [two same images of here, she has inscribed one to Capt Mair from his neice.
James Booth and three daughters [my number 11 ]there is also two cdvs of a young girl named Booth Wanganui, I am assuming they are the same family.
Also pair of maori unnamed man and woman ,both look familar too me and would need research, the backs are rough and scibbled on by a child.THESE were not part of the collection but I decided to include them in this lot .
I will continue to add all names as times allow me each day if this is not sold immedietely [so a buyer will have full names of all inscribed people.] and aid research.
Condition is as one would expect for 19th century material ,from very good to average .
