Description

In 1918 Wellington merchant and book collector Alexander Turnbull left his private library to the nation. The Alexander Turnbull Library forms the cornerstone of New Zealand's national collection of historical and heritage material. Exploring the library's development in its cultural context, this is also a history of New Zealand's intellectual life in the twentieth century.
