This is an auction for THE TURNBULL: A LIBRARY AND ITS WORLD, by Rachel Barrowman.

"In 1918 Wellington merchant and book collector Alexander Turnbull left his private library to the nation. The Alexander Turnbull Library forms the cornerstone of New Zealand's national collection of historical and heritage material. Exploring the library's development in its cultural context, this is also a history of New Zealand's intellectual life in the 20th century."

CONTENTS:

* The Fascinating Folly

* The House that Johannes Built, 1919-1937

* Turnbull Library Lures 'The Man In The Street', 1937-1960

* The Age of Revolution, 1960-1972

From Wikipedia:

"The collections of the Alexander Turnbull Library are in the custody of the National Library and are normally held in its Wellington building. It is named after Alexander Horsburgh Turnbull (1868–1918), whose bequest to the nation included the 55,000 volume nucleus of the current collection. It is charged under the Act to:

'Preserve, protect, develop, and make accessible for all the people of New Zealand the collections of that library in perpetuity and in a manner consistent with their status as documentary heritage and taonga'; and

'Develop the research collections and the services of the Alexander Turnbull Library, particularly in the fields of New Zealand and Pacific studies and rare books'; and

'Develop and maintain a comprehensive collection of documents relating to New Zealand and the people of New Zealand.'
