As well as assembling poems by some of New Zealand's best-known 19th-century writers – including William Pember Reeves, Alfred Domett, Jessie Mackay, Hubert Church and Blanche Baughan – W. F. Alexander and A. E. Currie's anthology, New Zealand verse, was notable for its substantial and reflective introduction. The first edition was published in London in 1906.
