Beginnings: A History of the North Shore of Auckland
By Paul Titchener

With the growing awareness that New Zealand has a worthwhile history, much of which has been faithfully preserved, there is increasing concern that much has been lost.

The North Shore - its people, its places and its events, spanning initially several centuries of Polynesian life and culture, and more recently three centuries of European settlement - has always been a colourful and stimulating place, in both Maori and Pakeha times. In publishing the history of early North Shore, Paul Titchener is bound, not only to stimulate greater interest in the `Beginnings', but will encourage others to preserve records for future historians. There would be few more valuable contributions that the present could hand down to future generations.
