New Zealand Cossoninae photos

Thomas Broun is not known for his lavishly illustrated descriptions, so it was a pleasant surprise to find a reprint of his 1908 revision of the New Zealand Cossoninae with a couple of photographic plates published with it. The full text of the volume is available as both HTML and a PDF from here on the National Library of New Zealand website.

Attached are black and white scans of the plates
