Portrait frontispiece of Godley, 251pp. There has not been much written about the foundation of a colony, and none is more likely to be instructive more than that of the foundation of Canterbury, New Zealand, a hundred years ago. Godley, a close friend of Gladstone inspired, planned, led and established Canterbury. Godley was an eminent Victorian who wrestled with the Irish problem and took part in the reform of the War Office after the Crimean War. Bound in green cloth, spine lettering gilt, near fine in unclipped dust jacket with some chipping to spine ends.
