This is an auction for NEW ZEALAND FOREST PARKS by by J H Johns (photographs) & C G R Chavasse (text).

"This book illustrates and describes the nineteen forest parks of New Zealand, perhaps unrivalled for diversity and interest anywhere in the world. The aim of creating forest parks is to meet people's needs. Prominent features of our landscape, the parks are managed for multiple uses, from preservation for scientific and recreational purposes to the production of wood and hydroelectric power. Important for water, soil, and wildlife conservation, the parks also include zones which will produce a perpetual harvest of wood - mans most useful and versatile raw material. Most of the parks are more easily accessible than one might think, and contain well-marked picnic spots, walking tracks, horse-riding areas, and places where Maori and pakeha artefacts and relics have been preserved for generations . . . Such is their diversity, and such is the wide scope of options the parks provide, that this book will stimulate parks conservation and management, and will encourage people to see New Zealand forest parks at first hand."
