This is an auction for THE SEDDONS by T E Y Seddon.

“This is a book within a book. A life within a life. It is Tom Seddon's autobiography, from his earliest childhood in Kumara on the West Coast of the 1890s to the present day, a tale of pleasant nostalgia and occasional sad memories. It is also the story, and naturally an intimate one, of the last years of "King Dick" Seddon, as seen through the eyes of his son and indirectly through the eyes of his large family. With Tom Seddon we live through the great days of the Liberal Party, when New Zealand was taking her first steps towards the Welfare State and to nationhood, and we live through the party's gradual decline and its replacement by the Labour Party. His account of his parliamentary career is full of absorbing information about internal rivalries and the genesis of political ideas that helped shape New Zealand's destiny. Here is a unique historical document, recapturing the atmosphere of well over half a century of New Zealand's development, seasoned with delightful anecdotes and shrewd comments. The imposing figure of Richard John Seddon looms large on the book."
