This is an auction for THE HISTORY OF NEW ZEALAND AVIATION, by Ross Ewing & Ross Macpherson.

"This jointly-written history marks the contribution of countless New Zealanders to the cause of aviation, both military and civil, at home and abroad, and both in the air and on the ground. It is a general text on New Zealand aviation, and is aimed not just at those with a specialist interest but also at those with a passing interest in the subject in the hope that it will stimulate them further. The idea of compiling a joint civil-military history of New Zealand aviation first arose in the late 1970s, at a time when New Zealand aviation seemed to becoming apart at the seams. Our concern at this development was one of the main reasons for pressing ahead with what turned out to be a massive project. Other reasons were that from an early age we both had become very interested in flying and in aircraft of all kinds and wished to share this interest. This book is not all-inclusive, nor is it designed as an enthusiast’s detailed reference text. The scope of this history – spanning over 130 years of aerial endeavour has allowed us to focus only on the highlights and, regrettably, some fascinating subjects have been merely touched on. In many cases it has been necessary to summarise a subject that would have easily formed a chapter on its own. Every measure has been taken to check the accuracy and completeness of the various topics. Knowing that it is virtually impossible to achieve 100 percent accuracy, we apologise in advance for any slips of the pen, for any inaccuracies and for any important omissions."
