This is an auction for THE PAST TODAY: HISTORIC PLACES IN NEW ZEALAND, edited by John Wilson.

“In THE PAST TODAY: HISTORIC PLACES IN NEW ZEALAND, the Historic Places Trust presents a wider view of New Zealand’s heritage than its previous publications. Central to this volume is an understanding that New Zealand’s story began at least ten centuries ago. ‘Historic Places’ is shown to encompass not only significant buildings of European settlement. It covers also places of traditional emotional and spiritual importance to the Maori people, and archaeological sites, such as those on Auckland’s volcanic cones and at Kaikoura, which yield understanding of the ways of life of the first New Zealanders. The book demonstrates, too, that not all the significant sites in the European history of New Zealand are marked by buildings – one chapter evokes the place of Captain Cook’s landing at Mercury Bay.”
