Katherine Mansfield’s New Zealand
by Vincent O’Sullivan

Katherine Mansfield, New Zealand’s most famous writer, departed eagerly for Europe when she was nineteen, never to return; yet her most memorable stories capture the innocence and gaiety of her New Zealand childhood.
Pictured in this book are the people and places of “The Garden Party”, “The Doll’s House”, and many more wonderful stories that were written in a desperate race against death on the other side of the world.
Before she left New Zealand, Katherine Mansfield made an adventurous journey into the wild northern geothermal areas; rare contemporary photographs of that trip are published for the first time in this book.
This then is a collection of fine pictures of New Zealand at the turn of the century, enhanced by extraordinarily relevant quotations from the stories themselves and the often precocious, but always insightful, comments in Katherine Mansfield’s Journal.

Large hardback, 1988, 80pages, good condition b/w photos throughout, small wear/tear/chip in jacket
