Cyclopedia of New Zealand, The, Preface and Index

PREFACE.

IT is with much gratification that the Directors of THE CYCLOPEDIA COMPANY OF NEW ZEALAND present to their Hawke’s Bay and Taranaki Subscribers this sectional part of their great Colonial work. The part deals entirely with the active interests of Hawke’s Bay and Taranaki – interests so various, large, and characteristic of British colonising energy, that this particular part has exceeded the size usually allowed for the interim publications it is deemed necessary to issue as frequently as the material in hand will permit. It will, however, be seen at once that the following pages are necessarily incomplete, in view of the magnitude of the Company’s object, which will be fully accomplished only with the publication of the last of the six promised Volumes, which are to epitomise the human interests and industries of the whole of the Provincial Districts of New Zealand.

Succeeding parts will give a finished character to the work, and will also afford an opportunity for Subscribers to correct inadvertent errors, and to make such alterations as they may desire, and to which the Editor’s attention may be drawn. As the Directors strive to achieve thorough trustworthiness in their work, they will, in this respect, willingly meet Subscribers on equitable terms.

Readers of the Hawke’s Bay and Taranaki section will readily estimate the wide scope and responsible nature of the Cyclopedia; but the splendid support received by the Company from all parts of the Colony encourages the Directors in the patient prosecution of a task which is destined to be recognised as an invaluable record of the commercial, political and social progress of New Zealand, and to become a monumental memento of the Company’s enterprise.

All communications on any subject connected with the work should be addressed to the Secretary, 153 Manchester Street, Christchurch.

Additional information

Possibly published in 1906 – note that the text in this record is very different to the text contained in the more well-known 1908 publication which includes Taranaki, Hawke’s Bay and the Wellington District.

“The Cyclopedia of New Zealand” was published in six volumes between 1897 and 1908 by the Cyclopedia Company Ltd. Each volume deals with a region of New Zealand and includes information on local towns and districts, government departments, individuals, businesses, clubs and societies. There is biographical information about individuals included. It must be noted that people paid to have their details included and supplied the compilers with their own information.
