This is an auction for WALTER NASH by Keith Sinclair.

From Wikipedia:

"Sir Walter Nash (1882-1968) served as Prime Minister of New Zealand from 1957 to 1960 and was also highly influential in his role as Minister of Finance. He is noted for his long period of service, having been associated with the Labour Party since its creation. Many also associate him with the gradual shift of the Labour Party away from its original socialism... When Nash took office in 1957 the country's financial situation was found to be worse than the previous government had admitted, with balance of payments a serious concern. Nash decided that drastic measures would be necessary to bring the situation back under control. These measures resulted in the so-called "Black Budget", presented by new Finance Minister Arnold Nordmeyer. The budget included a significant tax increase and it generated widespread public anger . . . The situation was exacerbated by Nash's frequent absences from the country, leaving Nordmeyer and other Labour ministers to defend the government's policies themselves. Nash was also criticised for failing to act in the controversy over the 1959 rugby tour of South Africa, which country was under an apartheid government. Nash, however, refused to step in, saying that the matter was for the rugby authorities to decide. This decision cost Labour much support. In the 1960 election Labour was defeated by the National Party and Nash became Leader of the Opposition once again . . . "
