'The Governor's Gift. The Auckland Public Library 1880-1980' - Wynne Colgan

Richards Publishing and Auckland City Council 1980, hardcover, 235pp. Dustjacket and book in good condition.

'This commemorative volume charts the progress of a great library through a hundred years of crowded history. It also provides fascinating profiles of personalities and events, and an account of the original library, the Auckland Mechanics' Institute. For the first 40 years of settlement the institute was the city's principal library and social centre.
'The Governors Gift' is not only the story of a major public library and the people who have guided it through its first century. It is also in outline a lively, social history of a burgeoning city over the period of 140 years.' (From the Dustjacket) Please click here to ask a question
