The first great editor of the Journal (NZ Journal Of Physiotherapy) was Margaret Hollis. Margaret came to New Zealand from England where she had worked with Guthrie Smith, and brought a raft of new ideas about suspension therapy, massage, exercise and movement, particularly to cardiothoracic therapy. Within months of her arrival, she was made Vice Principal of the School and Editor of the Journal. Over her two-year term the journal grew in size, secured more advertising revenue (not least from the supplier of Guthrie Smith suspension systems that Hollis brought from England), and defined a higher standard of editorial leadership with her newly appointed Editorial Committee. Inevitably though, the pressure to squeeze decent material from the readership proved too much even for Hollis, as became clear in a bitter Editorial published in 1949

An Early 19thC French Coloured Lithograpgh Of The Costumes Of The Maori Taken From "Voyage Of The Astrolabe."
260mm x 386.
Circa 1830.
The book, undertaken by order of the king, during the years 1826-29 is an account of a scientific expedition to the Pacific. Illustration from the atlas section of the book.
De Sainson wrote of his admiration for individual Mäori and for Mäori activities and rejected the negative stereotypes about Mäori that were commonly expressed in France. Leonard Bell describes him as 'a serious, close and sympathetic observer of Mäori culture and society . . . [his] approach was level-headed and empirical. Though not always successful, he attempted to record what he saw. His renderings of ornament and moko look careful and faithful . . . '. The official account of the voyage of the Astrolabe was written by Dumont d'Urville and illustrated with lithographs by Antoine Maurin, made from de Sainson's drawings. Maurin was a painter and lithographer who exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1834 and 1836.

888mm Long.
Captain William Jackson Barry was a most colourful 19thC character who was born in England, shipped to Australia as a child convict about 1829, pursued a vast range of adventurous occupations including bank robber, bush ranger, whaler, auctioneer and trader before becoming a butcher and mayor of Cromwell, Otago, in 1866. In later years he lectured extensively throughout Australasia and Britain, telling tales of his adventurous youth. He wrote three books and it is said of his writing in the Encyclopedia of New Zealand "Lively, funny and dramatic, the writing succeeds in recreating a world of swashbuckling adventure and in making the author-hero into a legend larger than life". Elsewhere "He was friendly, humorous, justice loving, and generally well liked - and was undoubtedly New Zealand's greatest literary liar".

A Group Of Keith Murray Basalt Vases.
Impressed marks and facsimile signatures.
Circa 1935

New Zealand-born Keith Day Pearce Murray was one of the most influential and significant modernist designers. Born in Stokes Road, Mt Eden in 1892, Murray emigrated to England at the age of 14 with his parents Charles Henry Murray, originally from Peterhead, Scotland, and Lillian Day Murray (nee George), from Nelson. Although he graduated from the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London in 1921, he turned his considerable design and drawing skills to working in the decorative arts for most of the 1930s

Coincident with his successful glass work, Murray began designing ceramic tablewares for Wedgwood. In contrast to the highly coloured decorated wares of contemporary Art Deco designers such as Clarice Cliff, his style of ceramic decoration was characterised by subtle glaze finishes and an architectonic furrowing of parallel horizontal grooves which served to accentuate the classical purity of his forms. The simplicity of his designs meant they were relatively inexpensive to produce, and could be adapted to slip casting rather than hand-potting, thus fulfilling Wedgwood's request for 'new cheap shapes, attractive to modern eyes' which would be 'the best possible for the money and reasonably attractive to that growing section of the younger public which has some taste but no money.'

Murray's first designs for Wedgwood were made in a cream-coloured earthenware (Queensware), and also in black, and later bronze, basalt stoneware, produced by mixing colours obtained from cobalt oxide, iron oxide and manganese oxide.

His work was widely exhibited and photographed, and won Murray numerous awards and accolades, including a gold medal at the 5th Triennale in Milan in 1933, and a place among the ten designers to become Royal Designers for Industry, where he later held the title of Master of the Faculty from 1945 to 1947.

  A Grey Young architectural drawing of Nelson College.

Easily recognized as favouring the Neo-Georgian & Neo-Classical style.

AN 1870 RENT COLLECTION CASH BOX FROM RAINCLIFF STATION, NEW ZEALAND.

This small Native Lands Claims Department cash box was first used by Lt Col George Packe, a retired paymaster in the H. M. Fusiliers who had strong links to both the Wakefield family and the Canterbury Company. Mr Packe acquired the freehold of the massive Raincliff station and employed managers to collect rent from the many tenants and sheep farmers across Raincliff, Richmond and Oari Gorge. The next owner was Henry Hoare, a London banker who eventually went bankrupt, forcing the estate to be passed to the New Zealand Trust and Loan Company who divided the land into smaller plots. Thomas Arthur Hope of Liverpool purchased both Richmond and Orari Gorge. Later with his partners, the Grant brothers, they formed the Grant and Hope Land Co. Rent collecting was made on a monthly basis on horseback covering over 400,000 acres with armed escort from the Canterbury company. The hope family were the last to use the cash box. Bearing the Hope plaque, that appears to have been added later, the cash box has the words “TOTO O TE TANGATA, HE KAI, TE ORANGA O TE TANGAA HE WENA” which translates as: “food supplies the blood of man, his welfare depends on the land”.
