This is an auction for A CENTURY OF SHIPPING IN NEW ZEALAND by Gavin McLean.

“New Zealand’s shipping services have come a long way in a century. In 1900 the last sailing ships were bowing our of overseas trade to New Zealand. Steam was taking over, bringing greater speed, certainty and safety to people and their goods. Through two world wars and cycles of boom and bust, ships have continued to provide a vital economic lifeline between New Zealand and the rest of the world. Now, as 40-knot fast ferries cross Cook Strait in just an hour and a half and huge 50,000-ton container ships shuttle in and out of the nation’s major ports, join maritime historian Gavin McLean in an illustrated survey of a hundred years down at the waterfront.”
