Listing Detail Tabs

This is the story of Mansion House on Kawau Island north of Auckland from 1923-45 during one of its most colourful and progressive periods.

At the time it was owned by the author’s family – she is a daughter of Lawford Godfrey Reeves.

As she put it: “In this era the whole island seemed to receive a fresh infusion of blood.”

Memories of Mansion House is an entertaining and authentic part of the on-going history of Kawau Island.

In addition to personal recollections there is a summary of the Copper Mine, Kawau Maori history and an account of New Zealand Governor Sir George Grey's association with the island.

The book is lavishly illustrated with reproductions of old photographs, maps, and colour paintings.

Memories of Mansion House, Kawau Island by Nora Creina Wilson is a 1980 first edition published by Richards Publishing, Auckland.

It is a 124-page 15x21cm thick pictorial card soft cover in very good condition with great photographs scattered throughout and excellent two-page maps on the endpages.
