New Zealand Centennial Publications.
We have received the following letter from Mr. E. H. McCormick, editor of Centennial Publications:—
“I have to thank you for the complimentary references to Centennial publications on the literary page of your issue of 1st June. Both the National Historical Committee and this Department appreciate the interest you have shown in our various publications. The writer of the paragraph is, however, under a misapprehension when he states that ‘each book will be published in two editions, one appealing to the student and the collector and the other in popular illustrated form. The fact is that we are producing two separate series of Centennial surveys, the first a series of pictorial surveys with the series title of ‘Making New Zealand.’ The second series will consist of some fourteen surveys of 30,000 words each written by authorities, but equally with the pictorial series intended for popular reading. The book of the second series will also contain illustrations, maps and diagrams, but in smaller number than in the pictorial series. With renewed thanks for the interest you have shown in our work.”
