About this object
The Illustrated Diary or Life in the Bush New Zealand, written by Frederick Chapman with pen and ink sketches by his brother Alfred Chapman who's nom de plume was Alfred Steelpen.

Dated 26 June to 1 November 1854.

An intimate glimpse into the rich tapestry of Frederick and Alfred's daily lives; how they lived without the support of women; how they spent their leisure hours and how they successfully managed and broke in the Edenham farm property in Central Hawke's Bay.
