This is an auction for SPUR OF MORNING by Alan Mulgan.

From Wikipedia:

"Alan Edward Mulgan OBE (1881 – 1962) was a notable New Zealand journalist, writer and broadcaster. He was born in Katikati, Bay of Plenty. In 1935, Mulgan was awarded the King George V Silver Jubilee Medal. In the 1947 New Year Honours he was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire for services to literature, journalism and broadcasting... He never wrote a book as important as his son John's Man alone, but he did produce some significant publications. Both The New Zealand citizen and Maori and Pakeha: a history of New Zealand (written with A. W. Shrimpton, 1922) are representative of the type of idealistic and imperialistic historical writing then in vogue. His one-act play, The daughter (1922), a pioneer work of dramatic realism, is one of the best of its era. The novel Spur of morning (1934), although flawed, is of interest for its authentic presentation of New Zealand at the turn of the century. His best poems, such as 'Dead timber', 'Soldier settlement', 'Success', and parts of Golden wedding (1932), are important as social documents and effective as poetry. The making of a New Zealander (1958), while too reticent and prosaic to be an effective literary autobiography, helps to define the spirit of an age..."
