Detailed Product Description
Christchurch New Zealand, 1943. 255 pp, 42 b/w photos.  Original gray cloth Hardcover with red lettering on spine and front cover. Near Fine condition, former owner's inscription on the front endpaper.

Honestly, I am always surprised to see mountaineering books published during WW2. Where did they get the paper and ink?

The autobiography of well-known New Zealand mountaineer, George Edward Mannering, with a lot of fishing and shooting. [Neate M38.]

''His accounts of climbing and canoeing are capital adventure stories, and his accounts of fishing should have considerable practical and historical value. The chapter on the nature of glaciers seems to me one of the most interesting in the book. Few, if anyone, in New Zealand can have had so long or so close a knowledge of them. And I do not know elsewhere so good a description of life in Canterbury during the last thirty years of the nineteenth century.'' (From the foreword by L.G.D. Acland).

Chapters include: Birch Hill (North Canterbury); Fernside; Christchurch schools; Sailing ship to England - 1876; Schools in England; Three weeks on the continent; Horses and riding; Pig hunting; Bicycling and shooting; Removal to Christchurch - 1888; Christchurch Society in the 'eighties and 'nineties; Marriage; Removal to North Island - 1897; New Plymouth and Taranaki - 1902-1907; Timaru and South Canterbury - 1907-1911; Napier and Hawke's Bay - 1911-1919; Christchurch again - 1919; Six weeks in Switzerland; Back to New Zealand; Canoeing; Fifty years of New Zealand fishing; Hawke's Bay and Taupo - 1911-1919; Fifty years of New Zealand fishing (continued); Mountaineering in New Zealand; Mount Hutt; More Random Collections; The Phenonema of Glaciers.
