Produced for the 1942 Centenary, the sale of this book was checked by the onset of the black-out, barbed-wire period of the Pacific War. Its publishers, Messrs A. G. Betts and Son Ltd., Nelson, have generously donated 500 copies to the Nelson Historical Society. The entire proceeds go to the Society's funds.
