This is an auction for HUGH PRICE, PUBLISHER, edited by Beverley Randell and Roger Steele.



“Hugh Price loved books from an early age, and his belief that literacy itself was a civil liberty underpinned his career as a publisher. Many insightful stories were told about Hugh at the commemoration of his life, held in Palmerston ?North on 5 January 2010. The speeches from this occasion and the tributes that flowed in the following days and weeks have been compiled into this book. Also included here are Hugh’s own engaging memoir of a life in print, and a detailed timeline of his achievements — as a ground breaking publisher, a champion of civil liberties, a family man and a great New Zealander. In A Mind of His Own his daughter Susan — a book person and historian like her father — tells the story of his childhood. For over twenty-five years Susan built up a rich archive of memories, jotting down details whenever her father told an anecdote. She noticed the permeating influence the First World War had on the lives of the children of her father’s generation. It haunted the thoughts of their parents and teachers, and some adults were obsessed by it. Hugh’s aversion to war and violence came out of this environment and he lived his adult life as a quiet campaigner for human dignity. A Mind of His Own captures the experiences that formed him.”
