This is an auction for TAVERN IN THE TOWN by James McNeish.

"TAVERN IN THE TOWN is a very readable history of New Zealand pubs, as entertaining as it is informative. Replete with full-flavoured tales and legends, picturesque characters and easy humour - one of the liveliest books from a New Zealand author in many a year. James McNeish has revised his original edition and brought it up to date. He has also discovered some remarkable new material. This new edition of TAVERN IN THE TOWN contains seven new chapters and an outstanding collection of old photographs, many of them previously unpublished. TAVERN IN THE TOWN, now in its fifth edition, is already a classic. It is hard to imagine that anyone will produce a more definitive or livelier history."
