This is an auction for PALMERSTON NORTH: A CENTENNIAL HISTORY by G C Petersen

“Palmerston North is one of New Zealand's larger inland cities and this book covers the history of its development from the first European exploration in the 1840s, with pioneer settlers gradually taking up land in the area, which was involved in much dispute and negotiation with the Maori. Thus it was not until the 1870s that formal local government was introduced to the Manawatu region, of which Palmerston North developed as the major centre. In Petersen's excellent centennial history the progress of the greater Manawatu area is an integral component, so his book also covers much regional history.”
