Description of this Book
Whare Raupo - literally 'House of Reed' - is the authoritative history of New Zealand's oldest book publishing company. With the guidance of historian and writer Gavin McLean, it is not only the most complete history of Reed but also one of the most readable and fascinating accounts of the book trade ever released. Based on years of research - McLean is the only historian to have read all of the voluminous correspondence in the Reed archives - the author traces Reed from its founding by A.H. Reed in Dunedin in 1907, through its growth and golden years in Wellington in the mid-twentieth century, to the remaking of the modern company on Auckland's North Shore. Along the way emerge remarkable stories of writers, editors, designers, booksellers and printers, engaging personalities who have contributed to making the story of New Zealand books.
