Authors: Mike Johnston and Sascha Nolden. Geoscience Society of New Zealand Miscellaneous Publication 137. ISBN: 978-1-877480-38-6. Pages: 122. 'Hochstetter's First Nelson Diary' is the first part of the diary Ferdinand von Hochstetter kept to record his time in the Nelson region in 1859. In 2012, the Society published the second half of this diary, after which the first part (held by Hochstetter's descendants in Switzerland) has come to light. This first part has now been transcribed, translated, edited, and published.
