The Hundred of Devonport: A Centennial History
Edited by S. Musgrove

This book commemorates Devonport's first hundred years. Commissioned by the Devonport Borough Council, whose centenary falls on 6 May 1986, it does not attempt to be a definitive history of Devonport such a history, as Mayor W. D. Titchener says in his introduction, has yet to be written. Instead it is a celebration of the local community, providing a series of images of the borough's recent past.

Individual contributors have been asked to provide their own impressions of aspects of the community's history from David Simmons's interpretation of early Maori settlement in the area to Molly Elliot's and Chris Miller's evocation of Devonport today. Illustrations have been widely used to paint a faithful picture of this small community, which although so typical of New Zealand is also splendidly unique.
