Language of Materials


Name discrepancy

Fildes has this person noted as Roderick Carrick, and a Google search turns up a Roderick Carrick, author of 'A romance of Lake Wakatipu' (1892). However, that title is catalogued by the New Zealand National Library as by Robert Carrick, and by Victoria University of Wellington as by Robert Carrick, 1832-1914 (which is listed in the Library of Congress Name Authority file. The Alexander Turnbull Library lists Robert Osborne Carrick, which is consistent with information found in this file. We have chosen to use the name authority, but retained Fildes' own title wording.
