These pages are a transcription of the text of those pages of Joseph Dalton Hooker's Handbook of the New Zealand Flora (published in 1867) which relate to the angiosperm family Malvaceae, i.e. pp. 29-32 and 726.
In this work the malvaceous plants of New Zealand are divided between Malvaceae and Tiliaceae. The pages (pp. 33-4) for Aristotelia and Elaeocarpus (now separated from Tiliaceae as Elaeocarpaceae) are not transcribed.
The notation and terminology used in the work differ from current practice in a number of ways: the taxonomic rank of order used in the work corresponds to the rank of family; ae- and oe-ligatures are not now used in botanical names; and species epithets are now never capitalised, even when based on a proper noun. Where known to me, other deviations from modern usage, and points where the current understanding of the facts differs from that of the time of writing, are explicated in footnotes.
