This is an auction for EARLY DAYS IN NEW ZEALAND by John A Lee.

From Wikipedia:

"John Alfred Alexander Lee DCM (1891-1982) was a New Zealand politician and writer. He is one of the more prominent avowed socialists in New Zealand's political history . . . In the 1922 general elections he stood again and was elected. He soon became one of the better known members of Parliament, noted for his powerful oratory and strong views. He also played a considerable role in the Labour Party's internal policy formulation, where he had a strong interest in foreign affairs, defence and economics. Lee gradually emerged as the leader of Labour's left-wing faction, opposed primarily by the more orthodox Minister of Finance, Walter Nash. Lee and his allies, as well as being strongly socialist, were influenced by social credit theory, and believed that the government should take immediate control of the country's financial system. Nash opposed this, and was able to block proposals put forward by Lee to nationalise the Bank of New Zealand. Gradually, Lee's criticism of the Labour Party's leadership became increasingly public. As well as arguing for a more socialist policy platform, Lee also criticised the Labour Party's internal structure. In particular, he sought to abolish the tradition of having the Prime Minister appoint Cabinet instead, he wished Cabinet to be elected by caucus . . . "
