This is an auction for BOTANIC GARDENS & PARKS IN NEW ZEALAND, by Paul Tritenbatch.

"At last we have a book about the parks, gardens and town belts established in New Zealand during the 19th and early 20th century. Many of our towns and cities today are immeasurably richer because of settlers who set aside land for open space in the early settlements. Can anyone imagine Auckland without Cornwall Park and One Tree Hill, Wellington without its town belt, or Christchurch without Hagley Park? Paul Tritenbach traces the development of New Zealand's best known parks from their establishment, through to the present day. It is divided into 19 chapters, each giving an historical chronology of a particular park, using photographs, maps and text. The historic photographs and maps are superb, and tell much about the development of these parks and the early plantings of exotics. They show what a tremendous resource is stored in our museums and libraries, and how valuable photographic material can be as an historic record. The author has been selective in the parks chosen, and tried to include those that are largest and oldest as well as those that show historical differences. I would recommend the book to all those interested in the history of our parks and gardens. It will prove complementary to the more detailed histories published (or about to be) on individual parks and gardens. Just as importantly, it will go a long way towards raising the profile of our neglected garden heritage."
