Rare Books

Wednesday 10th August 2016

Art+Object’s second Rare Book auction of the year is promising to be one of its most diverse and interesting to date.

It features several important collections including rare Antarctic titles; Theophilus Heales hand written notes ‘Upon the Site of the Capital of New Zealand’ [ca 1841] as well as other important documents relating to the Manukau Land Company and the New Zealand Wars; a large collection of Maori prints and items related to William Colenso; and a superb offering of New Zealand ornithological books relating to Walter Lawry Buller.

Art+Object’s next Rare Book auction will be held in early December.
