  4. Hocken: Prince of Collectors

    Hocken: Prince of Collectors

    $60.00

    Dr Thomas Morland Hocken (1836–1910) arrived in Dunedin in 1862, aged 26. Throughout his busy life as a medical practitioner he amassed books, manuscripts, sketches, maps and photographs of early New Zealand. Much of his initial collecting focused on the early discovery narratives of James Cook; along with the writings of Rev. Samuel Marsden and his contemporaries; Edward Gibbon Wakefield and the New Zealand Company; and Māori, especially in the south. He gifted his collection to the University of Otago in 1910. Hocken was a contemporary of New Zealand’s other two notable early book collectors, Sir George Grey and Alexander Turnbull. In this magnificent piece of research, a companion volume to his Amassing Treasures for All Times: Sir George Grey, colonial bookman and collector, Donald Kerr examines Hocken’s collecting activities and his vital contribution to preserving the history of New Zealand’s early post-contact period.

  5. Minnie Dean: Her Life and Crimes

    Minnie Dean: Her Life and Crimes

    Lynley Hood

    $20.00

    In 1895 Minnie Dean became the only woman hanged by law in New Zealand. Her crime was child murder. According to folklore she killed babies with hat pins and threw their bodies into streams. It is said that nothing will grow on her grave.

    Minnie Dean was New Zealand's most famous child care worker. Her business of caring for illegitimate babies was an unwelcome reminder to righteous Victorians that their campaign for the suppression of fornication was a dismal failure. Some 'bastards' were killed or abandoned at birth, others were cared for by women like Minnie Dean.

    In this stunning book the award-winning biographer of Sylvia Ashton-Warner leads the reader through the labyrinth of myths and legends to the real Minnie Dean and raises some disturbing questions. Was Minnie Dean guilty as charged, or did the weight of public condemnation press heavily enough on the police, the judge and the juries involved to unbalance the scales of justice? Was the Winton baby farmer a mercenary cold-blooded killer? Or a scapegoat sacrificed at the altar of Victorian hypocrisy?
