This is an auction for THE UNIVERSITY OF NEW ZEALAND by Hugh Parton.

“The University of New Zealand, whose history ran from 1870 until 1961, was well described by its last Vice-Chancellor Sir George Currie. 'Here at the centre,' he remarked, 'are no students, no laboratories and lecture halls, no academic staff, merely a brass plate and an Act!' Academic staff were employed, and students taught, by the several university colleges; the University of New Zealand prescribed courses, conducted examinations, and awarded degrees. For the greater part of existence, in order to 'maintain objective standards', the university employed examiners overseas, usually in Great Britain. The historian J. C. Beaglehole published a historical study of the university in 1937. Understandably, therefore, although this book covers the entire history of the university, the main emphasis is on the later years.”

Oxford University Press hardback 1979.
