JOSENHANS, Joseph Friedrich. [A rare collection of six missionary scenes in New Zealand]
[Six plates from the New Zealand section of 'Illustrations of Missionary Scenes, an Offering to Youth'.] Mainz: Joseph Scholz, c.1855. Six tinted lithographs with original hand colour, bound with cloth on left edge. 325 x 205mm, backed on linen. Manuscript pagination on all sheets.
All six plates relating to New Zealand from 'Illustrations of Missionary Scenes, an Offering to Youth', by Joseph Friedrich Josenhans (1812-84, Inspector (head) of the Basel Mission), which contained views from West Africa, India, China and north west America as well as New Zealand. There does not appear to be a standard order of plates. The titles of the plates (from Abbey's 'Travel in Aquatint and Lithography, 1770-1860') are: 'War Canoe'; 'The Power of God's Word' (with a missionary facing down Maoris, one sticking his tongue out); 'Blind Solomon, led by his wife'; 'Interior of the native church at Otaki'; 'Missionary Meeting'; and 'A Dying Christian chief exhorting his followers'. Abbey Travel 10: ''Carefully drawn, and in some cases remarkably powerful illustrations'.
