This is an auction for THE SAILING SHIPS OF THE NEW ZEALAND SHIPPING COMPANY 1873-1900, by Alan Bott.

"The New Zealand Shipping Company (now part of P&O) was one of the first lines to establish a regular service between England and New Zealand - the longest sea trade route in the world. The sailing ships owned by the NZS Co between 1873 and 1900 had a splendour and a grace which cannot be matched by their motorised successors. Alan Bott here provides not only the authoritative history of these elegant vessels but also evokes the excitement of life under sail, with the help of such items as the ships' logs, passengers' diaries, menus and newspaper reports. The romance associated with the days of sail is here rendered even more vivid by the 83 photographs illustrating the ships and the men (and women) who sailed in them, and the three fold-out builder's plans and the eight magnificent full-colour reproductions of paintings of the sailing ships of the New Zealand Shipping Company."
