German geologist Ferdinand von Hochstetter is regarded by many as the "father" of New Zealand geology. In 2012, the GSNZ 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.
