Good early map of New Zealand By D'Urville.

D'Urville conducted the first complete survey of New Zealand. 'Dumont D'Urville's 1835 chart of New Zealand was the most accurate of the time' (Hooker).

Rear Admiral Jules Sébastien César Dumont d'Urville (1790-1842) was a French explorer and naval officer, who explored the south and western Pacific, Australia, New Zealand, and Antarctica. Dumont d'Urville led an expedition into the South Pacific aboard the Astrolabe, which sailed to the coast of southern Australia, extensively mapped the South Island of New Zealand
