This is an auction for A BOOK OF NEW ZEALAND by J C Reid & Peter Cape.

"A BOOK OF NEW ZEALAND had an enthusiastic reception when it was first published in 1964. Following Professor J.C.Reid's death, Peter Cape, the well-known author and art critic, was asked to revise the book for a new edition and bring it up to date. From the discovery of New Zealand in 1642 by Abel Tasman to the present day, there's been no lack of discerning chronicles of its pioneering life and of the gradual emergence of a distinctive society in New Zealand. Drawing generously upon both records and creative writing, J.C. Reid and Peter Cape have produced a wide-ranging anthology, which gives a vivid impression of the country, its history and its people. In this collection of material from familiar and out-of-the-way sources, New Zealanders will recognise the special features of their land and their way of life; others will find it an intriguing introduction to a country that is as proud of its national identity as of its British heritage. Of special interest is the broad selection of poetry in, which, particularly of recent times, New Zealand is notably rich. A splendid collection of colour and black and white illustrations includes reproductions of early contemporary paintings, as well as striking photographs of the New Zealand landscape."
