THE PUBLISHER has much pleasure in calling the general attention of the inhabitants of the Provinces of New Zealand to the above series of very popular new Maps, the sale of which has already greatly exceeded his expectations.
Having been compiled and printed in Auckland under his own inspection, with the assistance of the principal Government Surveyors and Draughtsmen, they contain more accurate information, and are more complete and better finished than any Maps of New Zealand yet published.
The very great expense at which they have been got up, has induced the publisher to offer them at the very reasonable and low prices as above, knowing that only a very extensive sale in the Provinces will repay him for the outlay.
At the above prices they will be forwarded free by post.
