This is an auction for THE LETTERS OF A R D FAIRBURN, edited by Lauris Edmond.

"Lauris Edmond has attempted, in her selection of 237 letters out of the 900 in the Alexander Turnbull Library, to do justice to the complex and engaging personality of their writer. The bulk of the letters are concerned with literary matters, but many of the remainder - to politicians, public servants, editors and businessmen - take up the cudgels in support of causes or in protest at injustice".

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Poet and novelist Lauris Edmond was born in 1924 in New Zealand. She is the author of more than ten collections of poetry, three volumes of her autobiography, a novel, and a play. She has also collaborated on the story for an opera and edited several books. She won the Commonwealth Poetry Prize for Selected Poems (1995).

From Wikipedia:

"Arthur Rex Dugard "Rex" Fairburn (1904–1957) was a New Zealand poet who was born and died in Auckland. He attended Auckland Grammar School, where he first met R. A. K. Mason, and worked at various jobs, including relief work on the roads. Later he tutored in English and lectured on the history and theory of Art at Elam School of Art, Auckland University College. His poetry was initially influenced by the (then unfashionable) Georgian poets."
