This is an auction for NEW ZEALAND TRAGEDIES: EARTHQUAKES by Anna Rogers . review:

"'In truth an Earthquake is an awful thing. The Earth is seized with a fit, and you do not know to what height the convulsion may grow. The effect of it is I think quite peculiar. The solid earth, the very embodiment of the principle of stability, becoming unstable, destroys your confidence in every thing. You cannot run away from it, and you cannot sit still under it, for it is everywhere.' Those words, written by New Zealand politician Henry Sewell in 1855, sum up the essential qualities of earthquakes. They are horribly sudden, there is absolutely nothing one can do to stop or control them and there is no escape. Earthquakes are perhaps the most terrifying of all natural disasters in New Zealand. This book covers the 1931 Hawkes Bay Earthquake and Earthquakes Through The Ages. In a lively and approachable text based on Geoff Conleys superbly thorough research, and through a selection of fascinating illustrations, Anna Rogers traces the history of earthquakes in New Zealand, describing vividly the havoc they can cause and reminding us of the need to be prepared."
