This is an auction for THE LONG WHITE CLOUD: AO TEA ROA by William Pember Reeves.

"THE LONG WHITE CLOUD: AO TEA ROA is an account of the history of New Zealand, from the time of the arrival of the Maori people to the beginning of the 20th century. The author captures the inspiring pioneering spirit of the inhabitants of New Zealand - from the early bitter tribal wars to the country's growing role as a major trading centre and its emergence as a modern democratic state."

From Wikipedia:

"The Hon. William Pember Reeves (b. 10 February 1857 in Lyttelton, New Zealand, d. 16 May 1932 in London) was a New Zealand statesman, historian and poet, who promoted social reform. Reeves' parents migrated to Canterbury in 1857, arriving three weeks before he was born. He was educated at a private “prep” school in Christchurch, the local high school, and the Christ's College Grammar School. Before entering politics, Reeves was a lawyer and journalist. He was editor of the Canterbury Times in 1885 and the Lyttelton Times (1889–1891)... He represented the Christchurch electorate of St Albans in Parliament from 1887 to 1890, and then Christchurch from 1890 to 1896, when he resigned to take up the Agent-generalship... Some of Reeves's more influential writings include his history of New Zealand, The Long White Cloud (1898), and State Experiments in Australia and New Zealand (1902)..."
