This is an auction for WELLINGTON SKETCHBOOK by Unk White (illustrations) & Monte Holcroft (text).

“Wellington has grown from beach settlements, fringing the magnificent harbour, into a city of wharves and tall buildings. But narrow streets weave in and out around the hills on which the city stands, with lanes and steps running of them into unsuspected corners. These, like so much of the city, are richly flavoured with history, and even though many old buildings have been torn down there are still enough to act as windows into the past. In M H Holcroft’s text for this book, he opens these windows to illuminate the lives of any characters of those who established New Zealand’s capital, from the earliest days until quite recent years, and his stories of how and why the various buildings and landmarks came into being give a vivid cross-section of history. Unk White’s illustrations are as crisp and vigorous as the winds that blow over Wellington, and the text and sketches blend together to present a delightful picture of the city.”
