This is an auction for A HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF AUCKLAND 1883-1983, by Keith Sinclair.

"Of the four New Zealand universities which date their beginnings to the nineteenth century, Auckland is the last to have found a historian. First as a college teaching students to be examined by the university of New Zealand, and only in the last two decades as an autonomous, degree-granting institution, the University in Auckland now a full century of life to be recorded. Keith Sinclair tells some remarkable stories, from the feud between the Professor of Mathematics and the Chairman of the College Council over the Chairman's son stabling his horses in the college stables, to the Professor of Economics (and Mental and Moral Science, Commercial Geography, and History!) who conned money out of his colleagues, to the row in the 1960s when a security agent was detected pursuing his enquiries on campus. As a former student of the University and a member of its staff since 1947, Professor Sinclair has participated in many of the events described. He never lets the reader forget that the story of a university is the story of people - of students as well as of administrators and academic staff. He has drawn tellingly on the records and the memories of the taught as well as of the teachers."
