Published to celebrate the centenary of its foundation, this book introduces and samples the Hocken's principal collections. There are many outstanding items in these collections, including significant holdings of twentieth-century New Zealand art, early New Zealand manuscripts, maps and publications, early Australian manuscripts and many other items of great interest. Designed to illustrate the richness of these collections, the book also stands as a tribute to the many benefactors, beginning with Dr T.M. Hocken at the end of the 19th century, who have the endowed the Hocken. This book will be both a surprise and a delight to all readers.
