Reprint, 1908 Souvenir & Programme, British team in New Zealand: The marvellous 1980s(?) reprint of the scarce and splendid original, almost too faithful and fooling some. Attractive semi-stiff grey card covers, approx. 9" x 5", 40 cream pp with terrific photographs of early teams, tourists and NZ committeemen and evocative advert etc. Even a limerick competition! Teams for the 'Lions' match v Wellington in the centre spread. (There was another version with the Test teams, too). Near mint, desirable item.
