Title: The Reed Book of New Zealand Quotations
Description: Auckland, New Zealand, Reed. 2004, First Edition. (ISBN: 0790009366) Hard Cover with dust jacket, Large 8vo. "New Zealand politicians have delivered some memorable quotes on the soapbox, from mighty King Dick Seddon and his expansive colleague William Pember Reeves through the trenchant socialist wit of Semple and Lee to the memorable outbursts from Holyoake, Muldoon and Lange. Great soldiers such as Kippenberger and Freyberg spoke as well as they fought; and scientist Rutherford had a way with words as well as with atoms. Our sportsfolk prove they are not the least bit dour; and our comics deliver, from the rural comedy of Frank S. Anthony through Barry Crump to the urbane idiocies of John Clarke, Tom Scott and AK Grant. This book is a storehouse of memorable quotations for every occasion. It is a browser that should be in the favourite reading possie in every New Zealand home." CONDITION Fine in like DJ. pp 293 in tight unread state. Overweight #New Zealand Literature#. New/New.
