An interesting 19th Century print depicting English missionaries being welcomed ashore in New Zealand by a party of Māori men and women.
For a similar impression of this extremely rare print, also printed in this particularly scarce monochrome colourway, see Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki [1961/36/3]. Another printed in colours but trimmed very close to the image was acquired in 2002 by the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa [2002-0021-1].
