Bateman New Zealand Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition By David Bateman Ltd Number Of Pages: 764 Publication Date: 2005-01 ISBN-10: 1869536010 ISBN-13: 9781869536015
This sixth edition of the Bateman New Zealand Encyclopedia has been updated and expanded to keep it in the position it has held since the first edition was published in 1984 - at the forefront of reference works on this country. This edition continues the tradition of readable, informative text for readers of all ages who seek wider background knowledge of this country. The type is legible and the layout functional. Because this is a functional book, pictures have been chosen to illustrate the text and not for their visual impact on design. The editorial aim has been to keep the fact-count high within a succinct text. Entries are in alphabetical order and a subject index, along with the selective index, at the back of the book has been included to help readers pursuing particular interests or lines of study.
