Two more digital chapters have been released in the progressive update to Leon Morel's catalogue of NZ Commemorative Medals prior to 1940.
Thanks to Martin Purdy of Upper Hutt, New Zealand for passing this information along.
This is part of a projected multi-volume series updating Leon Morel's Catalogue of Medallic
Commemoratives of New Zealand, 1865-1940 (1996) and the Supplement published in 2000. The third
edition marks a departure from previous RNSNZ catalogue projects in that it is being released
electronically in the first instance, and in sections. In this way, parts of the book can be published as
they become ready, and can also be regularly updated as new information becomes available.
The various sections of the catalogue will ultimately cover the whole of NZ's medallic history from the
earliest issues associated with this country through to the Centennial events of 1940. More recent
issues, from 1940 (not Centennial-related) to date, are being covered by a companion series,
Zealand Commemorative Medals since 1940, 3rd edition, also being published in parts and in
Because these publications are being released as searchable PDFs, the previous Index of Legends has
now been dispensed with as unnecessary.
